χάος (Chaos) – Barry Cooper
3 January – 1 February
Preview: Friday 10 January, 6-8pm
Q&A and solo violin performance: Saturday 11 January, 2-4pm

Eugene Ysäye his 6 violin virtuoso sonatas form the inspiration and basis of χάος (Chaos) by Barry Cooper. The violin pieces were written in the early 20 century for 6 virtuoso violin players. Barry Cooper has transformed each movement into a visual interpretation on large canvases. The result is a varied but very distinct new abstract body of work with sometimes figurative echoes.

Barry will paint and perform a live large painting continuing on the interpretation of Ysaye his violin sonatas during this exhibition.
