Balance is the theme of the current exhibition by these two established contemporary artists.
Alex Berdysheff’s works are a combination of often-distorted objects, with pure abstract forms and textural components. They coexist beyond any physical or logical limits, revealing the invisible tension and eternal struggle between or inside all forms of matter and giving rise to doubt in the reality of the visible.
Alex received the John Murray Thomson Award at the 2000 Royal Scottish Academy Annual Exhibition.
Patricia Volk’s sculptures in painted clay are playfully abstract and instinctive. Their language is one of contradictions and juxtapositions of form, line and often vibrant colour. She uses the idea of balance to convey precarious achievement, even if the work threatens to topple, but the pieces evade literal interpretation: the eye of the beholder is the last piece in the balancing act.
Patricia is a Fellow of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
Berdysheff, through his powerful surrealist paintings, and Volk, through her complex abstract expressionist sculptures, seek visual and intellectual equilibrium by employing the juxtaposition of disorder and careful structure.
