Kassandra Isaacson & Peter Rhoades: Visceral Vs Virtual

About Kassandra Isaacson & Peter Rhoades: Visceral Vs Virtual

Kassandra Isaacson and Peter Rhoades are painters, printmakers and teachers. This exhibition of work comes from a longstanding friendship and working association.

Independently, they have been developing work that explores the effect the media can have on our perceptions of our natural world and in our daily lives.

Peter’s response has been expressed through the medium of paint, an enduring visceral language. Kassandra has used digital collage, drawing, painting and textiles to observe and record her response.

Both have addressed this layering of realities, actual and virtual, using the familiar tropes of still life, life drawing and landscape.
