Philosopher Felix Guattari wrote “there is then a very specific ‘Condo effect’ which separates you from all the painters you seem to reinterpret. You sacrifice everything to this effect, particularly pictorial structure, which you systematically destroy, thus removing a protective guardrail, a from of reference which might reassure the viewer, who is denied access to a stable set of meanings”
It has featured artists such as Alexander Barton, Cameron McCool, and Kaitlyn Stubbs. Is also a cafe with breakfast, lunch and dinner! Also has a bar (if you’re old enough to drink, obviously)!
