This exhibition hints at a journey and notions of Nostalgia by reference imagery used in the gold(en) packaging and advertising of Benson & Hedges cigarettes from the 1970’s.

This cyclical loop, returning to find form in the present day parallels the journey made by Odysseus on his return from the Trojan wars. This return home or completion of an artwork proves no resting place for neither Odysseus nor the artist. Odysseus is compelled to leave Ithaca from the moment he arrives as is the artist to begin again another journey.

Gallery open Friday and Saturdays 10am-3pm.
