The Shape of Lies is a series of sculpture/reliefs that are a meditation on identity and materialism.
Using finely calibrated outlines, Gilloway endeavours to occupy a space somewhere between the descriptive short hand of the emoji and the discipline of a Haiku, emitting a tension disquieting in its suggestion of presence through absence.
