About In and Out of Our Minds//
“In and Out of Our Minds” is Metamorphosis Gallery’s newest group exhibition featuring a large collection of works from Jana Vodesil-Baruffi and Chris Badenoch. The duo have teamed up to create a exhibition highlighting the beauty of both realism and surrealism.
Jana Vodesil-Baruffi brings fantastical realism to life in a breathtaking collection of paintings which will be accompanied by video and music compositions created by Matt Ottley, an international acclaimed award-winning multimedia artist. This exhibition showcases her intimate love of nature and the human body. The shapes and colours of her work help Jana lead you into a world of fantasy – controlled illusion, charged with emotions, which seems almost believable and whose interpretation is personal to each viewer.
Meanwhile, Chris Badenoch takes you on a journey deep down the rabbit hole through his own unique brand of surrealism. Like Alice you’ll want to chase after these peculiar, inky and humorous little creations as he shows off his own take on storybook surrealism. Producing over 50 illustrations and a number of large paintings which has culminated in a 76 page picture book called “WORM”. It’s dark, funny and a little odd! This exhibition will be the launch of WORM to the world. He’s looking forward to meeting you all.
