Watching Paint Dry.....
Watching Paint Dry is an exhibition of new work by Stephen Millar, Nathan Crothers and Aziza Mills.
For the exhibition Belfast based artists Stephen Millar and Nathan Crothers have created a visual reply to December’s floods in the north of England. Specifically the pair has created a piece called ‘the Useless made Useful’ which highlights the government’s inaction in response to the floods. The piece is made up individual politician sandbags. Each sandbag depicts the image of a current member of the cabinet… Thus in the event of another flood these politician sandbags will be of more use than the politicians themselves. In addition to this both Millar and Crothers will also be showing a series works from the individual art practices.
Hebden Bridge based artist Aziza Mills is showcasing a new body of work including drawings and paintings of different life studies.
Forty percent of all sales will be added to the flood relief fund.
The exhibition runs from Thursday 3rd until Sunday 6th March 2016
