Paraphrase
24th May 2012
Group Show – Simon Hadley Attard, Mike Chavez-Dawson and Richard Shields

Paraphrase, a dynamic show that presents three unique artists who use history as a medium and materials as a language. All three artists navigate traditional methods whilst being acutely aware of our digital and postmodern age; enigmatic, large scale oil on canvas paintings by Simon Hadley Attard, elaborate laser drawings, minimal poster paint text paintings and an audio sculpture by Mike Chavez-Dawson and biro composite drawings on paper, paper cups, bank statements and found objects by Richard Shields.
