'In this exhibition Charalambous explores the foreshore, that liminal place between land and water, past and present. For, standing on the detritus of centuries, one cannot but contemplate what has passed before. The river is a melancholic and brooding presence haunting these images, and the artist carries us along in its tide, through the flotsam and jetsam, past townhouses overlooking the water’s edge, to meet with mudlarkers and mysterious watermen. This poetic journey, rich with allusion, shows us the river not as a place of leisure and enjoyment, but as a place of mystery and darkness. Thus the foreshore becomes a boundary, a strange hinterland, an edge-land.'
