“Tensions” – Selections from the Permanent Collection – features 6 sculptural works from the Art Gallery of Northumberland’s Permanent Collection. The works are tied together through their visual and material similarities and the responses they elicit. Each is a blank slate open to interpretation and hold the ability to be shaped into whatever metaphor the viewer wishes. The materials of each piece—such as stone or metal—feel hard, sterile and distant despite having been transformed into beautiful works of art. Through their tough and ridged materials, through a balancing act, a push and pull, lack of information or lack of engagement the sculptures evoke an air of tension.
