Philip Elbourne presents a new body of paintings, produced during the six-month Continuum residency programme at Husk.

About

These works dwell on a selection of objects, each of which evade straightforward categorisation. Among them are discarded metal canisters, fragments of clay tobacco pipes, burnt out fireworks, the torn remnants of removed posters in Bangladesh, and the partially assembled toy from Kinder Surprise egg. When speaking of these things he has chosen to paint, Elbourne uses the phrase, 'peripheral objects' to hint at the extent to which we recognise them. We register thier presence only at the fringes of our vision and consequently, we assign them no value in day-to-day life. They are things of ambiguous origin; thier fuction or a utility is unclear.
