The artworks in this exhibition, all by artists in Silver Street Studios, can be thought of as illustrations of the way that something new and significant comes to exist through the combination of unassuming parts. Furthermore, in the exhibition itself each work becomes a constituent part of a wider impression. This impression will vary between different viewers, each picking up different ingredients from each artwork and mentally combining them using a different recipe. What emerges, though, will always be greater than and different to its components. It will not be reducible to their sum or their difference. It will come up, come out, come to light. Be revealed, uncovered, disclosed. Quietly, slowly, gradually.
