Leslie Thornton, Clocktober

Opening Friday 5 October, 2018 6-8 pm

Exhibition dates: 5- 28 October 2018

When Leslie Thornton was a young student he lived right next door to the school but was always late. A confirmed clock watcher Leslie would stare at the schoolroom clock and sometimes observe the second hand slowing down and often stopping completely.

Now an iconoclast, artist and horologist, Leslie likes to play with rigid concepts and the clock provides endless variations to blur images that are unquestioned and ubiquitous.

CLOCKTOBER is an exhibition of one hundred clocks to be opened by Sue Ingleton on Friday October 5th 2018.
