Exhibition ‘Duality’

Duality is an exhibition of paintings resulting from a collaboration between Cypriot artist Lara Sophie Benjamin and American artist Hannah Uhde. The pair, who both have strong individual identities as painters, were drawn together by shared motives and the need to explore new territory and challenge themselves.
The project is rooted in two parallel elements bringing together the mental and the physical: their common passion for the physicality of the painting process and the breakdown of their inner visions of the human figure.
Within this, the artists also pursued two parallel lines of investigation, by painting a series of pieces each, separately but in the collaborative environment, and a series of pieces on which they both worked interchangeably.
While all this had to begin on an introspective level, through collaboration, friendship and exchange, it became an exploration of the relationship and rapport between the artists and their responses to each other and their painting. They moved beyond self expression to examine their connection and roles, celebrating similarities in styles, approaches and ideologies, as well as the qualities that make them different.
The resulting renditions embody an investigation into the self and our connections to the people and the world around us, emotional states and the human condition.
The exhibition will be opened by artist Andros Efstathiou, Tuesday 2 October 2018 at 19:30.
