The Firehall presents inside out: the paintings of Shelley Rothenburger and Harold Coego.  Both artists use distorted representation and a painterly mark-making process to explore contemporary culture.
Rothenburger exposes our consumer culture with irony and humour while Coego translates “‘reality’ through an abstract cinematographic kaleidoscope”, both trying to reconcile the (often bizarre) human experience by observing and reflecting back our social landscapes.
