NIALL PICKVANCE

MON 2 JULY – SATURDAY 11 AUGUST

The human face is uniquely evolved to convey information. Our faces tell the story of who we are, where we come from and even how we think and feel.

Sometimes they act under orders and sometimes they betray us, revealing our inner lives and even secrets we’d prefer stay hidden.

This series is my attempt to visually express the capricious and contradictory nature within all of us. None of us is one thing. We each play many parts and wear many faces.
