I was walking back to my car on Friday evening and thought I’d sneak a peek at the latest offering from Back to Back Gallery in Bull st Newcastle. Well wasn’t I pleasantly surprised. A magical wonderland of amorphous shapes greeted me in an array of scale and colour.
Oh what a way to bring Newcastle alive.
The artists’ Mandy Robinson and Jen Denzin certainly have an eye for the bizarre and theatrical. I wonder they haven’t pursued set design but perhaps there is not much call for this career here in greater “Newie”. So impressed was I that yesterday I found my way back to the gallery for a closer look. Oh to embellish my house with these bewildering sculptures. But alas I cannot have everything I see and love (those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that last week I picked up a painting by the great Ellie Kauffman that now sits perfectly in my home). Anyway for those who are keen to get out there and see some art “Everything That Rises – an adventure in three dimensions” is exhibiting at Back to Back until September 4th.
