Lonsdale gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of contemporary sculpture featuring select work by Jim Hake, George Boileau and Keith W. Bentley.
(In)Form explores the relationships between materiality and representation in contemporary sculptural practices. Featuring sculptural work by Jim Hake, George Boileau and Keith W. Bentley, this exhibition examines how familiar objects and forms become transformed through material intervention into something new, carving out new spaces for articulating contemporary identities and narratives.
Jim Hake uses everyday objects and materials, like found gloves, plaster and ceramic, infused with a sense of humour to explore themes of memory and communication. Keith W. Bentley’s vivid sculptures play with classical forms to question religion, sexuality and the canon of art. George Boileau’s detailed figures situated in alienating structural environments convey the strength and dignity of humanity. Each draw on forms that at first appears familiar. Yet, through the combination of unexpected elements they become transformed, inviting deeper examination and contemplation.
