James Moore Exhibition - Strange Eden

James Moore Exhibition – Strange Eden Saturday 28th April 2018 - Sunday 10th June Location: Oriel Mwldan

James Moore’s work could be described as 'photo realist', because of his use of exacting techniques to mimic different materials. He beings with reference points such as museums dioramas, video games and dreams.  He copies, pastes, samples and collages to build his paintings and animations. Yet, if you look closer; there also occurs blurred edges, abstracted shapes and situations which don’t make sense; all tricks and games, because to Moore, 'painting has always been about fakery- about synthesising the world view into plastic space'.

Jennifer Taylor

Jennifer Taylor exhibition and performance Saturday 16th June 2018 - Sunday 15th July Location: Oriel Mwldan

Jennifer Taylor works with film and live performance to create absurd scenarios. She uses abandoned structures in remote landscapes as found stage sets. Ancient Neolithic burial chambers and obscure towers in Wales provide surreal, displaced settings that bring a sense of post-apocalyptic degeneration. Jennifer Taylor was recently featured in The Guardian for a performance piece in Rome. You will have a chance to see one of her performances at an exhibition closing event on the 14 July at 7.30pm. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with Helena Turgel - email below.
