This selection of works from the Collection groups works in a variety of media, dealing with identity, spitituality and the body. Antony Gormley’s prints ‘Body and Soul’ and Hughie O’Donoghue’s drawing ‘Oxygen’ are firmly rooted in the body, but they trancend the physical, as does Anish Kapoor in his abstract, concentrated investigations of the properties of light and colour. More political issues of identity and existence are raised by Elaine Reichek and Ellen Gallagher while Gavin Turk and Grenville Davey focus on physical realities. Other works in this display include Jaki Irvine’s ‘Margaret Again’, paintings by Patrick Scott and Patrick Graham, an installation by Art and Language and prints by Picasso and Catherine Lynch.
