OUTSIDE IN AND BETHLEM GALLERY

Until September 11

The second collaborative exhibition between Outside In and Bethlem Gallery showcases two refined yet differing perspectives on geometric form by artists Daniel and Rodney. Daniel's Metatron works form a series of drawings that use geometric shapes, lines and vivid colour. Rodney's process of distilling complex forms down to something more elegant is carried out without any formal training.
