People who have saved this event:


Group exhibition exploring the theme 'Painting as Terrain' by Alison Downer, Claudia Bose, Daphne Leighton, Jane Frederick, Jyoti Bharwani, Mary Romer Greenfield and Ruth Philo, curated by Jyoti Bharwani


The painters in this group seem to have in common a search for an imaginative primary creativity, a space for being, that which Heidegger defined as ‘the ground of existence prior to all knowledge.’ Their way of creating abstract forms from inner and outer worlds obscures pure referentiality. The materiality and process of using paint is the ideal way to capture this intangible expanse of life. The painted surface becomes a terrain for being for both the artist and the viewer. Robert Creeley calls this ‘the edge/ of being’.
