THE THICK OF IT
The Thick Of It brings together work by seven artists that balances process and the material concerns of painting, not as a discrete medium, but as a starting point with outcomes that blur disciplinary boundaries. Works here posit painting as a meditative or mundane activity, and painting as objects created with specific conceptual intentions or propositions. Context too is important, especially where the space of the gallery supports the work as an offering for contemplation. Instead of being apprehensive about disciplinary baggage, the artists represented here borrow from a range of painterly methods that yield diverse and intriguing products – distillates of studied experimentation.
