The BHRAG collection is a wunderkrammer of eclectic and eccentric depictions of the human body and face. As we exit a period of thinking about ourselves, this exhibition shifts our attention to all other people.
The word ‘other’ refers to that which is different from the original, and materially, these works are not human; they are others. Crushed minerals are sprinkled on board, plaster balls are smooshed into wood, ink is splattered over paper and paint is applied with precision to canvas. The process and materials of each work are different, but a common thread connects them; a desire to represent the human face.
Othering here is a matter of representation; look around and see other people.
