More or Less

May 25, 2012-January 6, 2013

At this time, perhaps more than any other, we are mindful of what is plentiful and what is scarce; of what some have and others don't. In life, the pursuit of more necessitates the apportionment of less. In art, these opposing qualities find connection through their ability to impart the sublime, whether through lavish profusion or bare simplicity. In this exhibition, we mean to explore the boundaries of excess and austerity - how these are expressed pictorially, materially and spatially, how they might converge and how these ideas reflect and impact our experience of the world.
