Sid Motion Gallery is pleased to present the group exhibition, Imagined Characters, which includes recent paintings and works on paper by Charis Entwisle, Pat O’Connor, Jennifer Louise Martin and Daniel Wheeler.


By working from found images, Jennifer Louise Martin and Pat O’Connor question the ideals of beauty portrayed in celebrity culture and commercial fashion campaigns, adding a surreal twist as they recreate these subjects in paint.

Pat O’Connor’s meticulous handling of paint leads us into a darker truth of these apparently glamorous worlds. Jennifer Louise Martin abstracts elements of the figure, weaving fictions around the images we are so accustomed to in the world of fashion photography.

Both Charis Entwisle and Daniel Wheeler stage their compositions with models and props, before depicting their subjects on canvas.

Daniel Wheeler uses a hyper realistic style that challenges the photographic; Charis Entwisle’s atmospheric scenarios play on pop culture.

Through this theatrical character building the paintings investigate contemporary narratives and personal style, identity and the viewers gaze in the age of the selfie.
