Private collection of Wayne Warren
Love takes on multitudes. To say it is one thing would be a lie.
But maybe we can all agree. That to be loved, is to be seen.
And this is where we encourage you to start.
Look at the work on display, and ask yourself, about the artist's depiction of love? What do they want you to see? Is this depiction sugar coated or abrupt? How do we visually recognise love and intimacy within art?

Zar describes his work as having a primeval sense of portraiture (‘Lust’) to other works which are intended to be depictions of ‘allegories’ (‘Love’).
