Semi figurative smears and acidic geometric fields combine in Andy Wicks and David Northedge's New Paintings. Both artists articulate a wasted dystopian landscape in which Wicks' liquid thin veils of colour corrupt and obscure floating geometric forms as though we are seeing alien planets through toxic condensation gathered on the window of our bathyscaphe. Northedge's semi abstract islands of slickly smeared silhouettes, scarred surfaces and flat planes of colour, depict an ambiguous junction between the figurative and the abstract. The cultivated application of paint gives his work an attraction which contradicts the apocalyptic subject matter.
