An exhibition that examines the notion that what we think (our inner reality) becomes our outer reality.
As within, so without

A picture tells a thousand stories…
A visual image can be so much more effective than words. Complex stories can be told with just a single image. With this in mind Saren Dobkins has created a body of work that draws us in visually and invites us to explore her narrative driven artworks.
Saren Dobkins is a contemporary artist, whose work is largely about transformation. She often depicts the moment between one state of being and transition into another. This exhibition is a lyrical yet introspective exploration of her unfolding journey.
As within, so without refers to the notion that what we think (our inner reality) becomes our outer reality. Both states are interrelated and interdependent.
It integrates 3 aspects: Sexual politics, Head Space and the pursuit of Courage. These bold, narrative paintings use metaphor to explore how our inner reality impacts on our outer world. Her strong colours and sculptural form are influenced by her African childhood. More recently a trip to the Arava Desert sees Israel playing a definitive role in awakening a new approach to representing space and subject matter. See her website for more information.
