Five Hundred Dollars is a new temporary exhibition space recently opened with the generous support of the Jerwood Charitable Foundation. Breaking New is the second exhibition at the gallery and showcases new work by eleven artists including:

A large-scale architectural light sculpture
Altered reproductions of old master paintings
A monochrome installation of bunting, painting and plinths
A bronze cast sculpture smothered in gloss paint
A small sculptural installation of taxidermy animals
Large-scale paintings of creatures and totems
A photographic series from hole-punched negatives
A sound and drawing installation
Portrait paintings on psychedelic marbled surfaces
Grotesque, beautiful collage and painting
An evolving drawing and sculptural installation

It is a transitory review of artists whose works are brought together without an overarching thematic or conceptual delineation. Patterns of interest emerge throughout with associations of; intricacy, intentions, parallel investigations, colour and media. Inclusively there is a sense of wonderment be it visible in the of production processes, or in the presentation of unexpected correlations or conclusions.

Exhibition curated by Sarah Williams and Rose Heelas
