This week’s gallery picks challenge boundaries and ask questions.
* * *
1. Bruce Dorfman’s stunning colorful abstract assemblages that ignore conventional spatial boundaries at June Kelly Gallery
2. Combining dense sculptural installation with video montages, Dineo Seshee Bopape’s artwork engages with powerful socio-political notions of memory, narration and representation.at Southbank Centre
3. Michael Berryhill’s latest show’s “Shrine Time” investigates both the physical space and spiritual aura of a shrine. For him, the object itself (the painting or drawing), and the act of stopping and looking, supplies the ultimate meaning at Bailey Gallery
4. Ingress/Egress lightly balances its journey in a space created of compressed experiences, a meditative dialogue of depth and transcendence. In its most basic form, the ownership of the works lie in the oneness of everyone who’s asked the eternal ‘why’ of the universe and made beautiful the uncertainty of the answers at Paradigm Arts
5. Dave Kinsey’s works in The Modern Condition are imbued with semi-abstracted figures and objects that become metaphors or symbols that ambiguously reference contemporary issues such as overpopulation, money, power, climate change, consumerism and the everyday dynamics of contemporary life at FFDG
6. Try again. Fail again. Fail better examines four artists’ explorations of ceramics and the inherent nature of its process, contributing authentic voices to the conversation surrounding clay at Cherry and Martin
