Installation view of The Garden of Earthly Delights at Westspace

The Garden of Earthly Delights - West Space

Niagara artists Glenn Barkley and Angela Brennan are holding a collaborative exhibition, The Garden of Earthly Delights at West Space.

Taking inspiration from Renaissance works such as Heironymus Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights (1503–1515) and Andrea Mantegna’s Agony in the garden (1457-59), Angela Brennan engages with the temporal instability of such works through improvised paintings, while Glenn Barkley draws on the surreal elements of the natural world depicted in these paintings, creating a series of wildly animated ceramic sculptures and wall hangings.

Exhibition runs from 12 February - 12 March 2016
