At once both intensely personal and universal in implication, Carolyn V Watson‘s sculptures and paintings search for a momentary revelation of the inexplicable. The show’s title alludes to the cryptic clues embedded in exaggeration and fables that can unlock a door into another awareness.

“Tales are open to interpretation, as are my works,” says the artist. “It’s about aporia ­– internal contradiction, incongruousness, variance and paradox. The less you know about something the more power it retains.”

Quoting the artist William Kentridge, she counsels: “I’m responsible for the suggestion, not the answer.” Deliberately ambiguous and manifesting a characteristic strangeness, Watson’s work propels the viewer into a visceral engagement.

 

Exhibition opens: 2-4pm Saturday 9 November 2019
