Pen & Paper: CYRCLE.
Not afraid to use the gallery as an interactive vehicle, CYRCLE.‘s exhibitions boasts new and intriguing ways to showcase their trajectory in the art world. While each show may differ to its last, a strong underlying motif of duality is present throughout.

The cowboy and Indian sculptures relay CYRCLE.’s latest show: “Capture the flag: conquer the divide!”. The exhibition dissects America’s timeless struggle and explores the origins of the nation through the mythology of the two accustomed counterparts — an iconic duality within American history.
