This is the very first time since it’s inception nearly two years ago that Gallery Sunari has dedicated the entire gallery purely to sculpture. Having three dimensional work in the space transforms interactions with the work, the space itself and people within it in such a dynamic way that installing this exhibition has been both a delight and a challenge.

Featuring the work of 15 artists working with abstraction, roughly a hundred years after the concept entered the western canon of art history with the paintings of Vassily Kandinsky and -more recently included but equally important- Hilma Af Klint before him. Simply defined as ‘non-representational art’ or art that preoccupies itself with the formal qualities of lines, shape, colour and geometry, an ‘abstract’ is also the summary of a text. This exhibition invites the viewer to engage on a deeply personal level with the emotions and thoughts that take shape and form through the hands of the artist in the gallery space.

Selected works by Roy B Wilkins will be available for viewing and purchase from 17 June (opening night) until 8 July at Gallery Sunari. Critically acclaimed, widely exhibited, Roy's career as an artist spans over 20 years, during which he has ben widely collected and has won prizes for his work. This is an excellent opportunity to experience what Roy brings to viewers and collectors of his art - something raw, real and deeply felt. The liberation with which Roy paints, brings that freshness to his work. Roy is constantly painting over the same works, constantly adding to and changing them, they are almost like living, ever evolving things with a life of their own. In order to exhibit, Roy has to force himself to stop painting over the works so that they may be exhibited and purchased, to be kept, by the viewer and potential lucky owner of his works.
