Monday 16th January - Sunday 29th January 2017
Signal Arts Centre is delighted to be exhibiting works by the artist Nicky Kruseman.
I have gathered shells over the years as mementos of family holidays. They have always appealed to me, those sensuous forms and secret chambers that once gave life and protection but are now empty, devoid of presence.
I have been drawn to painting these shells recently as they remind me of the passing of time, of an acute sense of emptiness, an absence of something that once existed. Some of the shells have been eroded over time by the power of the sea and have become another entity entirely, their emptiness exposed and exaggerated. Some have inadvertently become home to tiny pebbles and other detritus from the sea.

Opening Reception: Thursday 19th January 7 - 9 pm
