Gillian Iles: Towards eternal glory


This exhibition is a response to the idea of power  - its indefatigable presence, but as a construct, the vulnerability of it as well.

Red Head Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West, Ground Floor, Suite 115

The work represents a dichotomy of the idea of what power is.  Some images are direct and unavoidable, demanding the viewer to engage, react and navigate within their presence.

Other imagery is tucked away, at first not obviously visible, appearing or literally being inaccessible. Imagery sits on acute angles to the walls, the scale is small, and some are positioned out of reach.  The imagery requires the viewer to seek it out, to physically work or be uncomfortable in order to view it.

Although fueled by geo-political events, the work references the individual sublime experience, tapping into primal sensations and providing visceral opportunities for the viewer. 3-D objects.

 

Opening Reception is Thursday march 29th 6:00 to 8:30 pm
