City living can be an eye-opening experience. Any person who has lived in a city has had a crash course in life. The city never sleeps. It is expensive and noisy with busy streets and overcrowded tube rides. Yet, it is vibrant, surprising and energetic. City life is inspiring in its diversity and rich in history, architecture, arts and culture. The city is full of opportunity and a sense of endless possibility. Living in a city can be a love-hate relationship that often, one cannot imagine living without.
The exhibition presents work by Mychael Barratt, Clare Caulfield, Helen Chatterton, Janet Curley Cannon, John Duffin, Raewyn Harrison, Colin Moore, Nick Tankard, Chris Wood, and many more.

Chris Wood is a story teller. He is inspired by creation, the physical environment, the sea: how it moves, its power, shapes and ever-changing forms, the weather, the light, the colours, shapes and textures of the clouds, history, ships, yachting, the people he meets, the books he reads, personal memories, objects, tools, ephemera.
Chris seeks to find answers but his work often represents a paradox between a celebration and enjoyment of the aesthetics of beauty and our need to harness or control beauty - in short, it is often about struggle - physical, psychological or metaphysical.
Process is fundamental to Chris' work. His work is the result of hundreds of hours of research, notes, conversations, drawings and colour studies. He makes observational studies, field trips, takes photographs and seeks information from libraries and the internet.
