In Tandem, 2014
Playing the role of creative matchmaker, the curator, Olivia Welch, paired together artists to see what two minds and four hands produce when working in tandem. This project was not solely concerned with the end product - the entire process was captured and documented on the Brenda May Gallery blog, accessible from the website.
Mighty Small, 2013
Artwork on an immense scale often enthralls and consumes, whereas smaller works captivate on a much more intimate level, drawing the viewer in for closer inspection. This exhibition will not simply be concerned with works that are little, but works that defy the very notion of small meaning less or denoting an absence. It will present work that is compact, but is in every way just as powerful, notable and spectacular.
