The enduring power of Dante's imagination in his masterpiece 'The Divine Comedy' has inspired artists from the Middle Ages to the present.

Ruth O'Donnell
Lines of Descent

In this new body of work the artist Ruth O'Donnell juxtaposes images of fragile objects and the iconic beauty of the peacock motif. 'As time changes what endures?' poses the artist as she explores the meaning of immutable beauty through the image of the peacock and the mutable fragility of small delicate objects.

Joe Ryan - Ultra Vires
Tracy Sweeney - New Works

This two person exhibition features the work of Joe Ryan & Tracy Sweeney. Ryan's work is inspired by the theories of Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon and Michel Foucault's institutions and heterotopias. Tracy Sweeney's work stems from days and months of traversing the city of Stockholm. Lost in the city's stations of clinical muted greens, tiled blue tube tunnels and warning signs.
