Vane Gallery MA Show Newcastle February 2017


Several years since I have journeyed to Newcastle, too long a gap perhaps, and my first visit to Vane Gallery. This MA Show is an unexpected treat, very professional and assuredly on message. Lovely to meet up with Rashida Davison again who I had not seen since the 1990’s and likewise David Butler, not seen for ten years or so. Very enthused audience albeit three of the four photographs detailed suggest otherwise. Ready mades predominate. My favourite piece is the ever so tiny camera on the floor behind the two central figures (photograph lower,right) filming a fluorescent light tube vertically suspended on the rear wall. It would be wonderful to see a screening of this film at some point. Lovely to be nudged into discovering the explicit difference between the view through a digital lens and the way the mind sees through the eye. Impressive.
