Models and Materialities: Confabulation and the Contemporary Still life 1 – 29 October – 2 events

Artists – G.L. Brierley, Clare Chapman, Tim Dodds, Jonny Green, John Greenwood, Alex Hanna, Timothy Hon Hung Lee, Peter Jones, Chris Nurse, Laura Smith

This exhibition considers how contemporary painters approach still life through model making and materiality. What makes this exhibition distinctive is the light it throws on the unusual ways in which certain contemporary painters realize the objects of their still life, either prior to, or during, the course of painting. For example, constructing models and maquettes or staging the seemingly non-descript can provide points of departure for some artists whilst for others it is alchemical processing, prospecting and playing with materiality that throws up the unforeseen and never-seen-before objects of their still lifes.

Gallery open Tuesday – Saturday 12 – 5pm

Thursday 27th October 6.30 – 8.30 “Open conversation”
