Philip & Charles Gurrey, son and father, exhibit together for the first time in this exhibition of contemporary painting and sculpture which explores themes of war, history, power and truth.


Philip & Charles Gurrey are pleased to announce the opening of Material Matters a joint exhibition which brings together two artists fascinated by the material wrought-ness of the art object. Son and father, Philip and Charles Gurrey, have never exhibited work together before and this exciting new exhibition connects their deliberate and separate practices for the first time through a commitment to their given mediums.

The work in this exhibition explores themes of war, history, politics and power. These works are framed by an explicit commitment to truth, form and process and both of their very separate material investigations, though firmly grounded within the traditions of their given mediums, let ‘nothing inherited go unchallenged’1. The layers of meaning within the creation and reception of these artworks shows us that not experience alone but only thought that is fully saturated in experience is key to developing any understanding or notion of truth within art.
