Keith Rogers: FROM HERE TO THERE And In Between
A diverse collection of prints, drawings and digital artwork - in transition and paused -

14 November 2018 to 5 January 2019

The robin rests on a chair. A couple walk on a shingle spit. A mixed up mind moves to a feeling of calm. From chaos to peace. Shapes in a state of precariousness. Thoughts before a first kiss. Waiting. The emerging sphere. That special moment. The PAUSE.

Take a breath and be still for a while.
