About

Attesa, the new show at Oriel Q, opened with great success on Saturday 7 January. Artists Lee Williams, Jonathan Anderson and Mark Halliday, explored the meaning of Attesa and produced diverse works in relation to the notion…

Attesa means hope or expectation and was famously written on the backs of Lucio Fontana’s slashed canvases series.

The works on show, incorporating painting, drawing and sculpture, focus on the industrial. All the artists have experience of heavy industry and through this heritage, each artist questions the nature of this trade, from its glorious past, unsettled present and its future.

The materiality of common industrial products, in this case coal and iron, is at once, both suggested and used literally. Ideas of trade and commerce abound with the artists displaying a gratitude to the industry of the past and supportive of its essential future.
