On Measuring Uncertainty: Two person show with Kit Craig and Andrew Lim

23 April 2011 — 29 May 2011

Castlefield Gallery is pleased to present On Measuring Uncertainty, a two person show with Kit Craig and Andrew Lim. Their works reference, and are in part reliant on the laws of physics and mathematics, combining both a sense of geometry and natural form. The works that attempt to interpret and convey the unimaginable use references that range from early computer programmers flow charts, a 16th Century hermits dwelling to a cryptic interpretation of Rembrandts Self Portrait with Two Circles. Both through the use of traditional gallery display vernacular or materials and tools that are indigenous to the gallery space, the artists decipher or rearticulate our understanding of these disparate references.

Craig uses drawing as a central part of his practice, pushing our understanding of it, not only as a mere recording of thoughts or as an observational tool, but as extensions of the picture frame; viewing devices that attempt to articulate the process in which they were conceived, made and viewed. Lims approach is more extemporary in nature yet is carried out within a premeditated modus operandi, governed by the space in which he works and contingent upon its materials and its dimensions, out of which the work grows to its logical conclusion. On Measuring Uncertainty will investigate the broad philosophical themes of human knowledge and understanding, science versus religion or meaning in a contemporary context.
