SubTerania: Subliminal Terrain

"SubTerania: Subliminal Terrain"

is a new body of work from

local artist Benjamin Jai

opening on the 22nd of September 2017,

from 6pm.

Mixed media paintings on canvas

that broadly feature stripped back, minimal fields of colour,

the artworks in SubTerania give a sense of space,

allowing for the subtleties of paint to emerge

through colour, line, texture and reflective effects.

Everyone is welcome to attend the opening event.

Light refreshments available.

"SubTerania: Subliminal Terrain"

will be on view until

the 2nd of October 2017.
