EXHIBITION THEME
Splash: Attitudes and Process seeks artworks that embody attitude and style. Attitudes are catalysts for new processes and new ways of making. To use any material, or even to make work that is ethereal, arises from widely varied practices, but always embodies the artist’s attitude about creating. Furthermore, creating with style and intention reveals an artist’s point of view. Pushing the boundaries of art informs not only making art but also seeing it. This exhibition celebrates all of those things.
