‘Love Endures’ Group Show at StolenSpace Gallery

StolenSpace Gallery is pleased to present ‘Love Endures’, our February group exhibition highlighting the various interpretations of “love” amongst a diverse and exciting selection of artists.

Love: an intense emotion of affection, warmth, fondness, and regard towards a person or thing. Love encompasses both light and darkness, from unconditional familial love, kindness and compassion for others, to all-consuming paths of love and lust. It can be powerful in all of its goodness, or turned into a vice in which people are lead down a path of obsession. This exhibition explores all aspects of love; from bright ignitions to twisted interpretations, to love amongst nature and culture, expressions of love from the “cute” to the “kitsch”, and everything in-between!

One of the most common themes in the creative arts is love, due to its all encompassing power and existence in everything we do. Tokens of love have their place in art between friends and lovers, from the crafting of Welsh love spoons, to intricate paper ‘puzzle purses’, and the textural beauty of a woven love knot. These expressions have evolved from love notes carved into stone, to postcards, emails, to text messages and sliding into the DMs…the common thread of self-expression is found in each unique interpretation.

Each artist exhibiting in ‘Love Endures’ has their own personal expression of love in the exhibit, whether it is a love found in a hobby, a personal memory or emotion, or love for their culture, each piece will touch hearts this February, and be a reminder that “love endures” throughout time and life.
