Boundary Art, Cardiff Bay
Incorporating the work of five distinct artists, this exhibition is bound to awaken the senses and yet send you straight into a dreamworld. Shanghai-based Ping-Gang Cheng is a painter and calligraphist whose work often carries a bold contrast of colours and brushstrokes, creating the illusion of abstract shapes. Aaron Davies is a local Welsh artist who studied right here in Cardiff; he creates elegant ceramics using textures in a unique and almost random manner, providing more to see the closer you get.
Daleet Leon is a painter who produces chaotic yet calming pieces. His work conjures rough seas using beautifully blended colours and textures. Daleet focuses on nature in his work and attempts to transcend into what he calls ‘dream realities’, bringing the unconscious to the surface of the water which he paints. Sarah Spencer’s paintings draw on cinema’s aesthetic and derelict spaces while Sky Siouki captures landscapes and gives them a dreamlike aura by focusing on clouds that enshroud sunlight.
This particular assemblage of artists highlight the importance of textures when it comes to emotion in modern art. The mixture of philosophical and dreamlike work with physically intriguing pieces is designed to test boundaries between the personal and the pastoral.
