A NEW KITCHEN SINK
Feb 23 - Mar 24, 2017
The so-called Kitchen Sink Painters depicted life under austerity in postwar Britain, and dealt in accumulation: a loyalty to detail (the way a join works in a cheap flat matters); an aversion to editing (a half-finished bowl of cornflakes shouldn’t be finished or filled); a building-up of paint (work it until it takes on its weight in the world). In the 1954 essay that christened the school, David Sylvester described their work as 'inventory'. Take what’s on the table. That’s our life.
