“For the painter, the codes and languages of painting, like the paint itself, are, by their very nature, slippery and amorphous.”
This exhibition brings together striking work by ten artists who explore the materiality of paint through the elusive language of painting. They include: Phillip Allen, Simon Carter, Nadine Feinson, Paul Galyer, Paula MacArthur, James Petrucci, Alison Pilkington, Wendy Saunders, Ilona Szalay, Mimei Thompson.
The painters in this exhibition draw parallels between the slipperiness of their medium and the slipperiness of their mode of expression. They attempt to communicate what is unseen, the things which are in flux, indefinable, even invisible and felt rather than known, learned or copied.
These painters explore the borderland between the real and the imagined; they give us just enough, the essentials we need to get a sense of the ideas they are investigating.
