BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

This exhibition of work by nine artists is as much about the relationshi p between individual pieces than any overarching principle. Starting\, howe ver\, with the basis of painting made without the use of the hand\, the wor k by nine artists in all\, touches on design\, print\, abstraction and repr oduction.

\n

Both Marine Hugonnier and Pavel Büchl er work by altering or reconfiguring existing paintings\, reclaimi ng work made by other artists.  Two reports accompany each ‘restoration pai nting’ by Hugonnier.  One - Disguised as a tear – is an elaborate late 18th century landscape painting - that has beside it the description and record of the work before and after restoration. Pavel Büchler’s series of Modern Paintings are made up from discarded paintings left by other artists. 

\n

Three tall freestand ing concrete sculptures by Ben Mayman play unashamedly wit h the expressive potential in African and Eastern sculpture found by Modern ist artists during the middle of the 20th century.

\n< p style="text-align: justify\;">Da fni Barbageorgopoulou’s huge tapestry\, Bright Pointed Arch\, flows down from the ceiling to reveal an expanding abstract motif whic h combines the folkloric with the fashionable.

\n

The projection\, by Barnaby Hosking\, onto a ground or screen of black vel vet reveals a reverberating tetrahedron that floats in and out of focus.

\n

Jack Newling’s light touch with prints on cardboard are b oth a reinvestment and representation of the flat surface\, while Image s of No Gravity 4\,5 and 6 by Athanasios Arg ianas\, look at the mechanical process of recording and re-transmi tting information.

\n

FOS painting reinvests a literal use of material\, where the origin of colour\, in this case stain from fruits\ , is imbedded for real\, without illusion\, on a salt surface. 

\ n

Lucio Fontana’s Concetto Spaziale\, made in 1961\, plays a conceptual and pivotal role in the exhibition with the tension of the act ual surface typically released\, punctured by the artist.
