An exhibition of works by Lisa Malone
It looks like there’s been an accident; some of the inmates have escaped…
The work reveals an intimate view of the world, and asks questions about our place in it. It revolves around structures, containment and people’s interaction with each other and the landscapes they have created for themselves.
In All Along (a rollercoaster alluding to the path the sun makes in the sky) little anonymous people are moving in different ways, people are falling off out of control, clambering, searching for themselves in a precarious existence, their uncertainty echoed in the brooding sky.
Metronome, a dancing picture.
There, isn’t that lovely and contained.
