Dreamscapes unites six artists who creatively address issues of fantasy, spirituality and the human condition in their work. As societies begin to open up once again, this exhibition presents imaginary spaces that reflect on the regenerative powers of hope and imagination. Whether visually inspired by our interactions with nature and architecture, visions of outer space, or even vintage porcelain or video game design; the diverse range of sculptural artworks in Dreamscapes offer us a place to pause, reflect and engage in the joy of infinite possibilities as we anticipate the post-pandemic future ahead.
