At first, the work that arises may seem disparate and divergent, but give it a second consideration, and dialogues emerge. Nadiya Pavliv-Tokarska's paintings of London's business streets form a dialogue with Patrick O'Sullivan's structural paintings which in turn draw our attention to the fabric of the gallery. Allen Brown's paintings draws us back to the present as he explores fragmentation through refraction by glass and prisms. In Fiona McGregor's Silent Songs a post-apocalyptic robotic intelligence, delivers its message through fragments of text and song. You would imagine that silent mannequins would be in-human and alien, but in Punk Recruits handling they are far from being a non-human presence and come to stand in for the human presence absent though implied by the other works in the show.
