The possible’s slow fuse is lit by the imagination.
Emily Dickinson


If you try and take a cat apart to see how it works, the first thing you have
on your hands is a nonworking cat.
Douglas Adams


Through the alchemy of the creative process, something transcendental
happens so that an artwork exceeds the sum of its component parts. The
novel combination of material and context propels the imagination
forward. Reverse Parking examines the duality of a tangible physical
presence and the aura of cyberspace and psychic landscape.


This exhibition is formulated as a mathematical sequence of sorts, to
replicate the aspect of art-making where taking two steps forward and one
step back leads to resolution: via remapping; mirroring; igniting;
reassembling; renewing; collapsing; absenting and evaporating.

The work presented is a product of the digital age, made out of a sense of
wonder and dazzle, whether employing new technologies or bamboozled
by them.


Here, contrasts abound whether from the machinations of the studio or the
curatorial conversation. The reflective, industrial surfaces of Paul
Hosking’s structures both assert their presence and disappear into a virtual
maze of real and imagined spaces. Peter Lamb’s prints combine pristine
digital desirability with residual studio grunge.
