When art aims to show the inner emotive quality of an object, rather than merely represent it, the art becomes expressionistic. This movement followed on from the Fauves and Post Impressionists at the start of the 2oth century as a way of making sense of an increasingly illogical world.
Here we see the style continuing and being innovated by our collection of talented artists. The human soul is gut wrenchingly enclosed in captivity, magicians engage in a shamanistic dance and a world bakes beneath the midday sun. Each of these works strikes to the heart of the scene, capturing the delicate feelings that surround each subject and image. Darkness and light, tenderness and brutality, peace and violence are all shown for what they are mean to the artist in this fabulous exhibition. This is art that puts feelings above form and drips with emotion and attitude.
