St Paul’s Centre, Worthing as part of Worthing Art trail hosts an art exhibition of Rebecca McCardle and Nicola Stockley throughout June (Monday June 1st).
Here’s what Rebecca (images on the left) says about her work:
“As a visual artist I make work using a variety of media as part of an ongoing process of exploration and enquiry. I am interested in cycles of life, the transitory nature of our existence, the spiritual and the symbolic. Referencing historical still life I use objects and materials that are charged with meaning and strong associations both personally and universally. Current work explores themes of space and time using photographic processes to capture the movement of light through objects. I am currently studying my final year of a BA Fine Art degree at Northbrook College and share studio space at Hut42, East Beach Studios, Worthing.”
And what Nicola (images on the right) has to say about hers:
“My work explores existential ponderings and takes a critical view in understanding ourselves and the link between life and existence in relation to philosophical theories in literature through visual metaphors. I consider these visual metaphors as bodies of existence and analyse the difference in states of ‘living’ and ‘existing’ and through these states question the confines of societies ‘living’ in the world we live in today. I inquire into these confines of living using a subject in my work that has no understandable comprehension of the concept of death and therefore has never ‘lived’, challenging an audience to question their understanding of ‘living’ and the personal fulfilment of their own life.”
St Paul’s Centre is at 55b Chapel Road, Worthing.
