An exhibition of work by Ann-Kathrin Müller and Mark I'Anson.​​​​​​

With a fascination in surfaces and what lies beneath and between them Ann-Kathrin Müller here shows a painterly study of varied orchid species on glass panes. Working in oil paint allows her to explore both the vibrant colours and often visceral nature of her subject matter. The transparency of the glass meanwhile brings the wider surroundings into the work and freed of their original context the painted surfaces become objects in themselves.

Mark I'Anson's latest work mixes and matches. While masked women stride across framed walls Braw Lads, in all their finery, peer out from handmade boxes like half recalled memories. Unlikely paper dolls, pieces perhaps from some larger game, speak of troubled times. And at the heart of it all rather grubby sketchbooks where words and images collide and explanations can possibly be found.
