No Heroics, Please
No Heroics, Please brings together the work of four artists in a group show at The Crypt Gallery, Euston, London. Anneli Holmström , Jessie Makinson , Emma Pratt, and Kadie Salmon produce varied and often contrasting works of art, but they are united by their interest in narrative and story-telling, and how these qualities or references are manifested in visual art. If a picture tells a thousand words then an exhibition has the potential to be something of an essay; however in creating an environment of pictures, imagery and visual provocation, context and sequence become crucial to interpretation and understanding. To think of art as language and to allow form and colour to tell a story is a beginning, but even if a single image can be quantified as just a thousand words, then the translation of each word allows for variation and exponential mutation of the artist's story in their uptake, keeping the ending fluid in a way that a final page, falling curtain or rolling credit cannot be.
