CRUX is an exhibition of new works by emerging artists Dmitr i Galitzine\, R.M Phoenix and James Trimmer. From Adam Curtis’ documentarie s and the poems of John Keats to modern farming techniques and Tom Wolfe’s ‘A Man in Full’\, each work has emerged through conversation and an exchang e of ideas\, images and texts between artists and curators. This process ha s resulted in an exploration of ideas of knowledge and truth as expressed t hrough sculpture\, painting and print making.

CRUX is the Latina te name of the Southern Cross\, a constellation of stars charted by the anc ient Greeks and used as a navigational aid to locate the South. Due to the changing axial tilt of the planet\, this constellation sank beneath the hor izon gradually to be lost from Western knowledge. The constellation reappea red in the thirteenth century when Portuguese sailors voyaged into new wate rs to explore Africa. 

The artwork featured in CRUX thus reflect s upon our ability to perceive what is before us as true or stable. The art ists investigate the instability of visual meaning when the viewer is given access to different levels of knowledge or exposed to different materials. Through the manipulation of materials and subject matter which flip and co ntort the viewers perceptions\, these works call into question our ability to trust what we see and ask if we able to exist comfortably in a state of unknowing? 

Each artist is rapidly establishing themselves both in the UK and internationally\, as such this exhibition marks an exciting o pportunity to view new work by burgeoning artistic talents.
