Navigating Everyday Spaces the correct end date for the exhibition is 16th October

Art by the Sea will have the unsold work after the exhibition.

Brendan has been hard at work over the last few months finishing these sculptural pieces. It is his first major show since the "Passing Landscape" exhibition in 2015.
"Our relationship with interior and exterior spaces plays important part in the shaping of who we are.
In this show I have made a number of pieces from very small to larger wall pieces that investigate the relationships of single figures and groups of figures in constructed landscape and architectural interiors.
I have used ceramic, wood and metal, combining the physical and graphic characteristics of the different materials to achieve a spacial dialogue. 

Putting parts together that make a whole, to tell a story. In this show I have endeavoured to create spaces in which people, buildings and objects are held, trapped. I have always loved the space and stillness in a de Chirico painting. A place where time is halted. In making these works I hope to have created this sense of stillness and place."

In these wall pieces I have used different objects and materials to create scenes from different times and places in my life.

In these pieces I have looked at the relationship between architectural forms and spaces that they describe. By using forced perspective and odd angles I have played with forms, spaces and scale.
