17 September–13 November 2016
Darren Almond presents ‘New Work’ an exhibition in New Art Centre’s gallery and sculpture park.
In the gallery, Almond series of Timescape paintings explore his preoccupation with time and space and their absolute limits. The works suggest the conundrum, that although we know a certain amount about deep space, there is still so much that remains, at least for now, unknowable.
Almond makes work which explores ideas about time, space, history and memory and how these abstract concepts intersect and impact on the individual. He also examines the symbolic and emotional potential of objects, places and situations to produce works that have historical as well as personal significance. At the very core of his work is an exploration of time and space and for the viewer, they raise fundamental questions about our very existence.
Open daily 11am—4pm
