Tales of the Unexpected brings together paintings and drawings by Antonia Jackson and Isabelle Hayman, developed in response to recently rediscovered family archives belonging to their respective fathers. Super 8 films and forgotten slides documenting past travels provided both artists with an opportunity to explore memory and the diversity of other cultures in their own personal ways. Antonia developed a series of colourful, ambiguous and dreamlike paintings recreating a fictional memory from everyday scenes and unusual landscapes; Isabelle developed a series of multi-layered imaginary female portraits reflecting on the complexity of identity.
