Absence of Essence
This year's Joan Day Painting Bursary has been awarded to the West Yorkshire artist, writer and poet Stuart Rushworth. The Joan Day Bursary is an annual award in tribute to the memory of painter, Joan Day, who lived and worked in Yorkshire for much of her life. South Square Gallery offers this bursary to support promising emerging painters, inviting them to produce new work for a solo exhibition in the gallery.
Fascinated by the interiority of memory and its relationship to the physical world, Stuart Rushworth's work explores how we assemble landscape and streetscape as memories when we are not physically in them. His âmemory works' began as an investigation into the formation and decay of memory and the role played by abstract visual languages within this relationship.
