To Nov 29 Now the heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse, curated by Glenn Barkley. The words ‘now my heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse’ come from a song recorded by Bob Dylan and The Band, Tears of Rage. The lyric feels like it is about love, of a heart filled to the brim, that rattles and shakes and feels fecund. now my heart is filled with gold as if it were a purse responds to this and includes artists and artworks about two important things, love and family, which touch every one of us as people in some way but which is sometimes hidden due to the cynical nature of much contemporary art.

Nov 6 to Dec 20 Outside Looking In by Miya Ando. Miya Ando is a rarity in the art world. She creates paintings in metal: ‘Miya Ando’s refined, subtle works of rolled steel, made of sheets of burnished and chemically treated metal, are …a must-see for anyone interested in post-minimalist contemporary art’ (New York Times 2009). Born in California of Russian-American and Japanese parents, Miya has spent much of her life in the grounds of a Buddhist temple with her grandfather. Her ancestors were swordsmiths in the esteemed Bizen tradition and the allure of transforming metal is strong in her work. She too is conscious of her mutable cultural identity, ‘As a person who’s of mixed heritage, it was always a way for me to connect with that part of my family’. Traditional Japanese metalwork is almost alchemical in the hands of master workers. Miya is apprenticed to a master metalsmith in Japan and no stranger to the discipline of the traditional art form. She transforms the rigidity and solidity of steel into works of ethereal light and spirituality. She too speaks of evanescence, of respect for, and an innate understanding of, the transience and impermanence that underlies much of Japanese thinking and daily life. It is this sense of impermanence that is manifested through her mastery of demanding technical skills.
