North and South – at Naked Eye Gallery
As part of the Artists Open Houses and the Brighton Festival fringe Patrick O’Donnell and Ian Hodgson will be showcasing exciting and diverse new work at Naked Eye Gallery in Hove.
Both northern artists based in Brighton, they are thrilled to be collaborating with Naked Eye owner David Donno who has transformed an old regency workshop into a dynamic gallery space. Having exhibited separately with David before, the artists saw potential with the new space for a joint show, with the May festival as the ideal platform for its launch.
This mixed media drawing exhibition entitled ‘North and South’ explores how identity is imprinted with memories connected to place, objects and relationships. In some works architecture is the defining presence whereas in others figures or objects take over the space, but all reference the transformative process of journey.
In addition to traditionally framed works, both artists will collaborate on a site-specific piece relating to their dialogue and progression during the build up to the show.
