‘Of immobility alone does the intellect form a clear idea’ (Bergson, Creative Evolution)
The painting is fixed to the wall and doesn’t move, its flat surface is divided, marked, layered with pigment. And yet, the sensation before the work is of movement, of life. This exhibition juxtaposes paintings in which one senses movement across boundaries, across scale and perhaps across time and place. The duration of a life enfolded in the work is unfolded (paradoxically) through the appearance of an immobile, flat and bounded surface. Featuring work by Nicky Coutts, Catherine Ferguson, Wendy McLean and Tim Renshaw.
