At Meta House, Stanley Cubebrick – Geometric Rigour, Manual Imprecision an exhibition by Alex Pettiford, using colour and shape in bold geometric constructions. “We often make connections through symbols which stand strong and proud. But while looking for wholeness in strength we often forget the beauty of imperfection. By searching within ourselves and what we see, we allow these imperfections to come forward, and connect on a visual – and metaphorical – level. Softening our gaze, we see the chinks in the armour. When we realise these chinks, as well as strengths, are an inimitable part of us, we can appreciate their complimentary value. Imperfections make us.”
