Liminal Moments by Phillipa Butters and Paul Williams
22 April - 11 May
—Opening 22 April, Thursday 6-8pm (RSVP essential)—
Following on their previous duo-exhibitions with a shared affinity for spontaneity and abstraction, Liminal Moments is the third exciting collaboration between acclaimed artists Phillipa Butters and Paul Williams. The latest exhibition is a deeper exploration referencing liminality, highlighting its ambiguous and often unknown nature, focusing on its in-between state or threshold that opens the way to something new. Artist cum art therapist, Butters latest work centres around the initial response to person or place, and the the ongoing conversation between the self, the canvas and the creative process. Multi-award-winning artist, Williams’ landscape paintings suggest a bridge spanning a river, a metaphor for a rite of passage. His figurative work also conveys a feeling of ambiguity or alternative reality when navigating a liminal space.
“At some point I arrive on the other side… to something new, often unexpected, with a sense of resolution” – Phillipa Butters
“I constantly pursue novel insights when interpreting the landscape and the human form, I experience an intense joy when engaging with them.” – Paul Williams
