THE Ways of Seeing Places is a joint exhibition of paper clay sculptures by Graham Hay, works on paper by Jeff Chand and paintings by Michael Comstock.
Their common theme is the way artists are either organised in society, alienated from it or called on to perform special functions.
Hay says his works in paper clay more broadly illustrate the way people organise themselves. "Tribes of taste either fight it out or work together within a broad range of organisations and institutions,” he says. "My work is the personal interpretation and expression of the collective will.'
Chand describes his works as "an aggregation of energy on paper” while Comstock says his work is the result of his desire to question the way society functions, and the way it treats those who do not follow the normal routine.
Ways of Seeing Places ran at the Arts House Gallery next door to PICA until August 19. The gallery is open every day from 10am to 5pm.
