This group exhibition takes as its focus the physical encounter between viewer and object, person and thing. Like characters in conversation, each work asserts its individual personality through scale, texture and form to prompt an immediate visceral response. Evolving from the artists' highly personal approach to process and materials as much as to subject and meaning, these works function as embodiments rather than representations in which image, idea and material coalesce into a complete whole. The exhibition will include paintings, sculptures and video by Helene Appel, Frank Auerbach, Glenn Brown, Richard Deacon, Brian Griffiths, Des Hughes, Simon Ling, Eduardo Paolozzi and Emily Wardill.
