Hardware Gallery presents two new solo exhibitions by Sydney artists Andrew Ensor and Beth Josey.
Beth Josey - Belladonna
Beth Josey's exhibition Belladonna is a tale of paradox. Presented as a series of linocut prints and related paintings, the exhibition examines the naturally occuring irony of poisonous substances hidden within visually beautiful organisms.
Andrew Ensor - Castellum
Drawing inspiration from French chateaus and Japanese castles, Andrew Ensor has created a body of work that examines the symbolic power and status of architecture and the evolution of its meaning over time. By using only selected detail and presenting his subject with delicate and considered marks, Ensor is able to examine the passing of time, as these once powerful and forbidding structures are represented with decorative beauty.
