Exhibition Launch: Thursday 20th September - 4th November 2012
Curated by Lucy Newman Cleeve – Founder and Director of Man & Eve gallery in London. ‘Brittle Crazie Glasse’ is an exhibition that Lucy has been developing for the past two years, the title for which is taken from George Herbert’s poem ‘The Windows’.

Many of the works in this exhibition explore the use of light as an activating agent. Others recreate, describe or subvert natural phenomena. Still others create the appearance of a concrete physical object from the record of a temporal event. Even those works which approach the more traditional media of drawing and painting explore the slippage and boundaries between that which is immanent and that which is transcendent. Artists include: Richard Bevan, James Brooks, Sophie Clements, Mark Dean, Pip Dickens, Pippa Gatty, Alistair McClymont, Simson & Volley, and August Ventimiglia.
There are strong internal dialogues between the selected works concerning the use of video as a sculptural form, the history of photography and film as an artistic medium, the interplay between image and electronic music, and the relationships between science, philosophy, religion and art.
