ON A TANGENT @ Horsham Regional Gallery

On a Tangent explores the artistic practice of several artists who draw inspiration from the unexpected or digression through change of course. Some artworks have developed unintentionally through other projects, anecdotal evidence of different intentions; some works have developed through fleeting, personal encounters; while others see the possibility of the unremarkable reinvented or explore overlapping influences. Like a bolt from the blue from the stream of collective consciousness or by being lead down the garden path, these artists draw insight…
