The Underdog Gallery is proud to present new works by Alan Rankle and Kirsten Reynolds, two British artists who have been working collaboratively since 2010.
On the Edge of Wrong presents a visual dialogue between the two artists making visible the risk-taking inherent in both working in turn on a series of individual canvases.
A tension builds as diverse ideas are allowed to co-exist and develop. These most recent works take cues from the luminous, yet challenging landscapes of Claude Lorrain and Philip James de Loutherberg and add dynamic abstraction alongside great visual depth creating images of remarkable emotive power and apocalyptic intensity.
On the Edge of Wrong launches with a private view at The Underdog Gallery on Friday 29 November and opens to the public on Saturday 30 November.
The exhibition showcases a series of remarkable paintings developed from themes in Reynolds? seminal series of light drawing photographs. This series entitled Following Darkness saw Reynolds making long exposure photographs drawing with a variety of light sources in a woodland at dusk. The locations of the photographs themselves were inspired by elements of Rankle?s paintings and reflected concerns shared by both artists.
