Artist Dewi Cary's current exhibition 'Ending' is on show at the Sticks Gallery in Gosport from the 25th of November until the 13th of January. The exhibition is a combination of film and photography, inviting the audience to enter the world of the artist and to see the world through his eyes. The exhibition is free to the public, and opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday 11am-4pm.
Cary is dyslexic and has openly struggled with depression and other mental health issues. These experience have been a large driving force and inspiration behind his work. Cary describes his work as exploring "concepts of the conscious and the subconscious and how we might move between the borders of the mind and of the physical world itself." Cary's work is emotive and draws the viewer into the picture.
Sticks Gallery is presenting the exhibition as part of Disability History Month, which had the 2017 theme of Disability & Art. The event is designed to showcase artists who have a disability, as well as the way disabilities have been portrayed in art. The exhibition will continue past December through until the 13th of January. The gallery has also hosted two special events in conjunction with Cary's exhibition. The first, a workshop with Cary and Helena Eflerova exploring mental health using found objects collected from the shoreline of Priddy's Hard in Gosport. The second is part of the Arts, Disability and Inclusion symposium involving a discussion on artists with depression.
Entry is free to the exhibition and bookings are not required. The gallery will be closed for the Christmas period from December 16th 2017 till January 4th 2018. For more information head to the Sticks Gallery website.
