Behind Closed Doors; Art made in secret; away from observers, reporters, or intruders, usually in a closed room. Done in private. Work that leaves the viewer feeling voyeuristic. Images that are emotionally difficult, off-putting, unresolved, or in a space that is entirely too personal, often painfully so. Off-limits.

Portraits that embody the characters psyche that can lead to extreme forms, but can also act as a sort of catharsis. Visual images that are seedy in extremities

In this exhibition the viewer is being givin a privileged view behind closed doors adding a voyeuristic feel to the images. It’s as if an eye can roam onto images made not to be seen. The work will focus on video, digital photography and sculptural installation. Artists such as Francis Bagley, Hillary Holsonback and Danielle Georgiou will be featured.
