And There Is an End examines works iconoclastic to the present par of accustomed aesthetics and calls for a questioning of the contemporary turned conventional, instigating a search for a fiction in the idea. In such a pursuit, one can only attempt to draw parallels to an inquiry that reflects life; to look into the mirror and see  qualities of ourselves and our times. A search for poetic truths entails a search for art that not only has a dialogue with contemporary issues, but talks back to us. This exhibition brings together disparate voices to convene in a context  spanning multiple generations and varied  identities. With a range of works that acknowledges the individual via painting sand sculptural works with an unabashed display of the personal, the hand and the intuitive, implementing autonomous figuration and  tactile expressions  of materials that question the act of production and active image making.
