ON A TANGENT @ Horsham Regional Gallery

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…
