Paint
30 June 2022 - 30 July 2022
In this exhibition, paint itself is the star. Paint / material makes meaning. Narrative may exist but, in stark contrast to figurative painting, it’s not the primary driver for any of these artists. These artists are interested in exploring and pushing at the boundaries of what paint, and painting, can do. Paint itself is allowed to perform – its physicality is foregrounded - even though the artist is in the driver’s seat and underpinning that physicality with an intellectual engagement with art history that takes the work beyond the purely visual. There’s a sense of playing, having fun.
