Gallery: Gallery IV


Gallery IV

Gallery IV’s curator, Barbara Rae RA, was deeply affected by her recent trips to the Arctic and these themes spill out into her selection. In the centre of the space, Ken Currie’s painting Thaw is both luminous and haunting, while opposite, Nicholas Jones’s work depicts a seemingly “pristine” Arctic landscape. Gallery IV also looks at destruction and disintegration in a wider context with two ink drawings by the sculptor Michael Sandle RA capturing the devastation and ruin caused by contemporary warfare.
