One Two

One Two presents the work of Nina Chua with that of Tiago Duarte in an exhibition that addresses the aesthetic relationship between two works.

The work was selected by Mary Griffiths and invites the viewer into the common subtleties inhabiting each artists’ practice, such as the linear space between areas of print and drawing or the line of a journey that functions here as a common denominator for the show.

Preview: Thursday 21st March, 6-9pm

Opening times: 22nd-24th March, 12.30-3.30pm

Please contact both ninachua1@hotmail.com and du_arte@hotmail.com to arrange an alternative viewing time.
