Jorge Santos, Arvoredo ao entardecer, Acrylic on paper, 140cmx230cm

Flat Image responds to the need for reduction in scale during increasingly unaffordable times. The works selected reflect on larger reality by making it into a two-dimensional image, bringing vast spaces into the confines of a small gallery perimeter. Artists Olivia Bax, Nicky Coutts, Theodore Ereira-Guyer, Sam Llewellyn-Jones, Felippe Moraes, and Jorge Santos are set in a prolific dialogue and in close proximity to each other. In the exhibition reduction is considered not only as the timeless effort to approximate reality through the limits of representation, but also as a practical and unpredictable solution to the problem of living expenses. Can a small space allow for a greater concentration of dialogue when artists come together? How does the flat image expand the confines of spacial and temporal scale? The show is a prompt to see the artworks as copies of interpretations of reality. What is gained when this information is shared and travels through the visitors?
