Soft Machines
In this joint exhibition, William Andris Wood and Helen Whitley aim to communicate ideas about anatomy from both an aesthetic and a learning perspective. The human body has long been an integral aspect of European art. The intention of their joint exhibition, Soft Machines, is to address a conflict between the often emotive nature of the subject matter, in a objective and scientific approach.

Their concerted understanding of unseen structures is what brings the three-dimensional objects in their environments to life on a two-dimensional surface.

The title ‘Soft Machines’ relates to the metaphor of the human body as made up of mechanical parts, each with a specific function.

Their joint understanding of the intimate relationship between structure and function in human anatomy allows the artists to create images that explore these ideas.

All are welcome to the Preview Evening on Wednesday 6th September 6.30-8.30pm.
