Rory Carter’s friends (and family) were out in force last night for the opening of Junction his new show at CCAS Manuka. Rory has sacrificed detail for expressionistic impact in a series extraordinarily intense portraits. Where colour is involved the surfaces of work shimmer with life and where there is only black and white, minimal marks make big statements. Love that ! ” The subjects” says Rory, ” stem from direct observations within common places. These unscripted engagements are key to the sincerity of the work; forming a dialogue between observer and the observed.” High quality art at very reasonable prices – it should be noted. Nice one Rory. Junction at CCAS Manuka until 30 August.
