An exhibition of Five Painters


Artists: Alice Peillon Lisa McKendrick Ruth Solomons Charlie Day Bruce Lovelock Five painters went on vacation to the Candy Mountains, each came back with a sketchbook of drawings, rubbings and memoirs. They returned to their studios to make a series of paintings relating to their vacation away from the limitations of the ordinary world enlarging their observations in five very different ways. For Alice, the fluidity of time was sought out and close attention was paid to shadows and shapes which are often missed among everyday distractions. Lisa found a new sense of gravity in her mixed up images from the present, past and future, and became convinced that she could function outside the laws of science. Ruth discovered tiny details for colourful abstractions and let the paint drip and drag her motifs down the surface of the canvas. Bruce reconstructed decapitated teddy bears by sewing them back together inside-out in order to paint their defluffyfied portraits. Charlie took mundane objects and ordinary situations and transformed them into glorified carnivalesque compositions. Arbeit is a re-created gallery and these paintings re-create the artists' sketchbook findings through each of their different processes of discovery. Presented together the show demonstrates the range of their responses to what was seen at the Candy Mountains, during their vacation away. Private View 25th October 6-10pm
