Within the current economic downturn, the media´s concentration on the home as a symptom and symbol places an incontrovertible focus of the relationship between dwellers and buildings. The habitat in which we reside and its extended environment dualistically offers opportunity and restriction, being a potential centre for comfort and conflict, rituals and reverie and a site for rich aesthetic exploration.

‘Close To Hand´ focuses on investigations and processes of eight artists: Lorraine Burrell; Gary Coyle; Cleary + Connolly; Katie Holten; Nick Miller; Collette Nolan and Nathalie du Pasquier who continue to invoke the personal and physical relationship of their surroundings within their practice. Exploring and exposing the blurring or ‘entanglements´[1] between life and its environs, the exhibition celebrates the creative impetus that is the familiar and the overlooked within our everyday context and thereby prompts the viewer to ‘look again´ at the relationship with one´s immediate surroundings.
