Connections made in the space between people

BORDON’S Phoenix Theatre is now home to a new art exhibition.
Forces is a mixed-media, two-dimensional art exhibition by three artists - Alison McFadden, Julia Keenan and Morwenna Lake, who have all graduated from Farnham’s University for the Creative Arts and are establishing their art practice.
All have exhibited widely and this exhibition at the Phoenix Theatre and Arts Centre, in Station Road, has been curated to show a particular theme of their art.
According to the theatre: “These three unique artists, in Forces, present works which consider the power and nature of forces.
“Be it the bursting of a seed head; the marks made by a tree branch moving in the wind, or the trace of body movement marking the momentum made by swinging from gym rings, forces are at work.”
The exhibition will be in the The Phoenix foyer and room three until Christmas and entry is free of charge.
The work of Alison, from Bordon, is inspired by human movement. Her Imagined Choreographies mural - painted on a wall in the staff dining room at Wellington College school, in Crowthorne, Berkshire - is about physicality and movement. She was invited to make the mural for the college, after her work was spotted at an exhibition, in January, at the Espacio Gallery in east London.
“Using colour and gesture, I explore the limits of the body and meeting points between two bodies as internal worlds connect, exchange and bond, within and beyond the limits of skin,” she said. “It is a dance of attraction. The springs of desire are in the very possibility of a leap across the abyss of otherness. Connections are made in space. Fire ignites.”
