Guy Maestri’s new works play with perception. ‘After August’ prompts the viewer to look deeper for what can be seen beyond the surface – through it, around it and under it.
Naomi Riddle writes in her catalogue essay for the exhibition that the series evokes a feeling ‘of slight disorientation: there’s the dizzying panoply of colours, the deliberately occluded or cropped images, and the sculptures that appear to have been chopped apart.’
