construct as metaphor

Construct as metaphor
A show at the Chrissie Cotter Gallery, Leichhardt featuring Barbara Halnan and Rose Anne McGreevy.
Metaphor: a figure of speech in which a word or phrase literally denoting one kind of object or idea is applied to another to suggest a likeness or analogy between them.
In this exhibition the two artists who have worked jointly on many projects come together again to explore the way in which their "art" is constructed and the metaphoric levels of meaning inherent in visual imagery, whether it be film or video, large scale constructions, or the intimacy of painting and drawing.
