A favourite game of ours is to pick a TV show or movie, preferably with four leading characters, and assign them to each other based on looks, personality traits, and events. Sometimes it doesn't work out perfectly and one or two people are poor matches. The most successful matching to date in my opinion, was Winnie the Pooh and friends. Pooh-Bear, Piglet, Tigger and Eey-ore. Well that's one way of seeing us. At its simplest, this is an exhibition of portraiture. Four friends have represented what they think they know of each other. They have created the characters they see. Like a film or novel, these characters have evolved and present themselves to you, our audience. However, these characters were developed not through a single authorial vision, but envisioned by the other players. At its warmest, this exhibition is homage. The persona comprised from memories, photographs and stories tell as much about the author as they do the character. In dedicating an exhibition to one's friends there's an element of humble self portraiture.
