Responding to specific sites, ruined seminaries, disused farm buildings, unloved suburbs, and evoking broken utopias, Andrew Szczech finds peace and solace in his melancholic painting. Cracks sprawl across the works, like distorted modernist grids and broken flesh. 


Through the exhibition, Violet Mareck’s assemblages, sculptures and installations weave between the paintings, echoing Szczech’s lost utopias. Informed by her subconscious and conscious reactions to current events and her own experiences, Violet’s work focuses on memories and dreams embedded into our very being, how they inform our adult minds and the way we go on to live and how we treat others.
