(re)arrangements brings the artists together in an exhibition that explores the repurposing, reuse, recycling and reinterpretation of photographic imagery, images collected from the internet, magazines, films, personal and public archives, stuido walls, their own work and other works of art.
These artists rearrange form or idea, seeking new intent by repurposing an existing one. A car part found by the roadside turned 3D glyph; a repainted detail from an early 20th century naturist magazine; an abstracted fragment of a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device: (re)arrangements explores how strategies of redeployment and recontextualization can generate new ways of seeing and understanding.

Light is central to Heidi Melamed's work practice. Colour and light interplay in the role of brushstroke in her expanded paintings. She employs a variety of materials: laser-cut plywood, Perspex, glitter and LED neon, alongside acrylic paint of varying degrees of translucency and viscosity. Colour masquerades as both opaque and translucent, shining and matte, glittering and smooth, allowing compositions to be read in a multitude of ways. The parabola is at the core of her work, appearing in geometric form as well as in organic form through dripped and poured paint.
