Paint in Progress is an exhibition featuring works by some of East Anglia's most well-known and respected artists. The exhibition presents a unique insight into creative praxis...


Each of the artists were asked to exhibit a painted work ‘in progress’. At first this seemed straightforward, however for the artists, and myself as curator, unanswered questions continue to be raised. Perhaps the simplest being ‘what can be written about a work in progress when some of the work has yet to be seen?’ (19th February 2012).

Whilst some of the paintings may appear more visibly finished than others the question of whether a painting is ever really finished may be raised. Of those paintings that appear unfinished they give us an opportunity to ask ourselves which decisions could, or should, next be made. They reveal the indecisions, considerations, and challenges each of the artists may face.

The exhibited works reveal the value in perceived imperfections when unhidden by the finished composition. They also remind us of the pleasure in the journey; we don’t rush to the end of the book or skip to the end of a song.

Paint in Progress may remind us of our own imperfections, and ask us to consider decisions we made and those yet to make. We might consider how our choices and decisions affect the outcome of our lives.

After all, are we not in progress?
