Niagara Galleries is pleased to present The love that moves the sun and the other stars, an exhibition of recent works by Angela Brennan. The artist's varied approach to subject matter, informed by classical and contemporary sources is evident in these recent paintings and ceramics, which incorporate both abstraction and figuration. Escaping shapes, varying lines and bands of colour, carried by the brush, hover and hesitate across the surface of her paintings. Colours - lemon, orange, lime, purple, black - collide and float, suggesting an untethered state that goes beyond the borders of the painting. By contrast, Angela Brennan’s stoneware and earthenware pots suggest a grounded presence. While borrowing some motifs from her paintings, the ceramics are earthy, bounded by their physicality and remaining within themselves.

Tuesday - Friday: 11am - 6pm, Saturday: 12 - 5pm
