The exhibition title “Unbinding” speaks to art practice as a metaphor for personal healing and growth. Treacy’s mixed media paintings on panel explore abstraction as a tool to excavate and examine his subconscious behaviors. Thames' ceramic sculptures consist of new and previous works that that she has extended to tell her self-reflective story of fear, trauma and the need for autonomy.
