Semantics of Semiotics

16 Byron Street, Napier

If Brendon Gage had to be labelled as an artist he would describe himself as naive, untrained and enough ‘on the spectrum’ to be an outsider.

To explain his intrinsic motivation to produce art, he applies the analogy of comparing a prison having to release inmates from overcrowded cells, to having a compulsion to manufacture art from the ideas that are overcrowding the cells within his own cranium. The emancipation of the concept to a tactile form is a necessary personal process to create balance.

As part of the Semantics of Semiotics exhibition Brendan examines the relationship between image, text & image and text alone; ‘When we view art, we all have a personal interpretation of what we observe and what that means to us. Below is my own semiotic viewpoint of some of the work but would find it abhorrent to impose these onto any others analysis.’

Join Brendan to celebrate the opening of his exhibition on Friday 16 March, 5-7pm. All welcome!
