the Cylinder, the Sphere, the Cone
This three-person exhibition features large scale sculpture, painting, and mixed media by Lana Shuttleworth, Gary Simpson, and Pat Warner. Each artist addresses issues concerning our natural environment and the landscape. The title of the exhibition is taken from Cezanne’s famous remarks about nature and painting… to focus on the cylinder, the sphere, and the cone… and are often described as the beginning of modern art and quite possibly leading to conceptual art. Each artist’concept or idea is focused on the planning of the work beforehand with the use of – dirt collected from all over the sphere, the cylindrical trunks of trees and branches, and the safety cone – an object seen across all landscapes.
