The artists formerly known as Cathedral Studios Belfast present New Forms, their first exhibition as a collective. 

Having moved out of their Belfast studio space of 18 years in October last year, the four artists intend to keep showing work together. New Forms is a body of high quality, abstract, new works. The overarching concept of the show is to challenge each studio member to push their works beyond figuration and the restrictions of working to a specific set of instructions, to explore hitherto unknown territory. The group have continually influenced one another’s practice over the years, nuanced components of this show make this influence visible.

The Georgian gallery will be filled with expressive oil paintings, geometric drawings, digital prints and powder paint coated sculptures that provide a vibrant, immersive experience for visitors to the gallery that rewards repeat visits. The exhibition will reflect the diversity of art practices that each member of the collective specialises in.

The exhibition will continue upstairs in the Sunburst Gallery with John Macormac presenting a durational drawing throughout February.

Cathedral Collective are: Lisa Ballard, Tristan Barry, John Macormac, Kevin Miller.
