"Drawing is my oldest outlet, an obsession that is deeply rooted and has become fundamental to my well being. I generally draw spontaneously and have no concept in mind as an image unfolds. Recurring themes are figures and portraits made of small images, characters and body parts. People often ask how long i take to complete a drawing. The answer is: I don't know. I prefer to keep my process painless by ignoring time." - Jon Beinart

Signed copies of beinArt Publishing's 'Metamorphosis' will be available at the opening.

A few examples have been added to this event... Many more works will be exhibited at the show.

They came here on boats, with exquisite taste and bad manners they went forth feral and populated. / Their children's children spoke intimate nonsense shyly in shapeshifting playgrounds. / They altered their egos, telling tall tales amid imaginary worlds of others discards. / They peddled their wares, lines and letters to keep themselves fed full and snug in rugs. / Lazy afternoons sending out stories through tangled cords of collective conscious. / And as the days pass her water-table rises, leaking sympathetic wells of water at the world's wonders. / Casting shapes in the expectation of an approaching villain. / They labour in rapture to extract from the under-land a wide eyed monster, fiercely silent and already hunting for truffles. / The path to his lair littered with severed heads and indecipherable marks, left to guide his companions in the lessons of chaos. / In the search for the way of things this fledgling clan seek simplicity regardless of the fears that face them. / Together they prepare for exploration of uncharted territories - in the knowledge that their time together is fleeting and the end is theirs alone.

The World Tree > exhibition by Tim Parish


Protestors gather under the tree of life as bulldozers approach. Televisions vomit endless waterfalls of information. A disembodied totem of animal, vegetable and mineral world stares at you in profile. The city speaks in confusing angles where we lose perspective. The world tree is burning while man meditates under its shade.
