Gallery 2 - Imaging the Apple
Curated by John R. Neeson

In the jargon of American jazz musicians a gig was an 'apple', and a gig in New York City the big apple. A jazz interpretation of a standard or popular tune (in itself as iconic as an apple) takes advantage of the listener's familiarity with the melody to elucidate improvisation.  Visual artists often do the same, choosing an apparently mundane image and finding pictorial associations with it, the matching rational or (in the tradition of Dada and Surrealism) paradoxical.

Imagining the Apple is a show (a gig) in which thirty three artists consolidate their vision, play, or take 12 inch (30 centimetre) square pictorial chances creating an image of a single apple.  The artists include : Dale Hickey, Pat Brassington, Stewart MacFarlane, Guy Stuart, Lewis Miller, Julia Ciccaraone, David Keeling, Janenne Eaton, John R. Neeson, Philip Hunter, Janina Green, Vera Moller, Tim McMonagle, John Kelly, Elissa Sadgrove, Lesley Dumbrell, Jon Campbell, Stephen Bush, Mary Lou Pavlovic and Sadie Chandler.
