cueB gallery is pleased to present Tommy Ramsay’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

About

For this exhibition, Tommy Ramsay has made a new series of works that are placed under the umbrella title Concrete. The Latin term concrescere means to grow together through unity, and Ramsay has chosen to investigate aspects of the shared local environment in this body of work. His sources lie in the common-place and seemingly insignificant: the shadows of trees running along the edge of Brockley cemetery and the cracked and worn down pavements that branch out from Brockley High Road provide the raw materials for his practice.
Ramsay’s work makes connections between the everyday and the history of painting. A pavement has value as an image in multiple ways, it can be seen as concrete or as form and space, time and history. Once transferred into paint, these surfaces and markings play both as painterly mark making and as a representation of a real mark i.e. both abstract and representational and engaging in an art historical context whilst still being rooted in reality.
