'For the only equivalent of the universe within is the universe without'. C.G. Jung

The process of painting and drawing is a subjective encounter between inner and outer worlds. Hence the paradox of painting that a decorative surface is able to act as mode of communication. Every mark on the surface faces outwards to the world and inwards to the artist's mind.

Is there a point where something seen transforms into and coincides with something imagined? Where inner and outer worlds fuse?

Artists: Trevor Burgess, Caroline Burraway, Nelson Diplexcito, Oli Epp, Marguerite Horner, John Kiki, Lee Maelzer, Mona Osman.

Co-curated by Marguerite Horner and Trevor Burgess
