Oceans, yes! Let us have more oceans, new oceans that blot out the past, oceans that create new geological formations, new topographical vistas and strange, terrifying continents, oceans that destroy and preserve at the same time, oceans that we can sail on, take off to new discoveries, new horizons
-Henry Miller, Tropic of Cancer
Damien Flood's work is situated between fact and fiction. The paintings are modern landscapes that reference the history of painting with an underlying fantastical element. A fleeting familiarity can be found in the work that is soon replaced by an ambiguous questioning For this exhibition Flood will exhibit a mixture of previously un-exhibited and newly produced work, which will include both painting and photography.
A screening of La Plančte Sauvage by René Laloux in early January will from part of the exhibition.
Opening Reception: 15 Dec, 6 - 8pm
Exhibition Dates: 15 Dec - 19 Jan 2012
