Jul 21 - Sep 20, 2017 FINAL WEEK
As the ferocious argument about the relevance of painting within the panorama of contemporary art recedes once again, there is a fresh, distinctly perceived urgency in how artists are once more embracing the medium without fear of being outdated and irrelevant. One of the current strands involving artists across the globe is represented by gestural painters adopting a minimalist attitude to their work. Where often contemporary art leaves nothing to the imagination and can be read virtually instantaneously by a generation brought up on instant visual gratification, these artists take on a ‘slow food’ philosophy to their practice. Their complex worlds are rather impenetrable to our superficial deciphering as their paintings resist digital translation and reassert the almost unique longevity of the medium along with its continuing ability to communicate with us at a mysteriously profound level.
