‘Middle Distance’ Exhibition
‘Middle Distance’ brings a high calibre of abstract artists from across the globe together on middle ground - the gallery. The exhibition consists Kirtland Ash, Paul Freud(son of Lucian Freud), David Meekison and Blair Zaye. While each artist works in the abstract realm they all have a different approach to abstraction. Using a combination of line, colour, form, texture, the brush stroke and the notion of artist’s mark to create compositional pieces which exist with a degree of independence from real life visual references in the world around them. Primarily non-representational indicating a departure from reality. The title of the exhibition eludes perhaps to the abstract finding its place in the ‘Middle Distance’ - the non space between the foreground and background and/or the artists themselves exploring this space between spaces in search of abstraction.

‘Bespoken’ Blair Zaye’s Solo Exhibition
Blair Zaye rounds off the 4 week series of exhibitions at Façade with his own solo show entitled ‘Bespoken’.
Bespoken is filled with a selection of paintings from Blair Zaye’s series of the same name. Each painting in ‘Bespoken’ is a collection of documented foretold ideas from everyday life. With frequent use of symbolism and diagrammatic drawings alluding to that of circuit boards or astronomic star maps. Challenging the viewer in an intellectual sense to stimulate internal confrontation and realisation.
