The exhibition includes works by Abigail BoxAlina TeodorescuAnastasia ScudamoreBlandine BardeauClaire Luxton,Jonathan RichardsLuke WalkerMatthew SpencerOzlem DemirelRomy GallowaySophie Derrick and Tom Waring. All the artists take the viewer beyond the surface to question; process, space, scale and colour, documenting the evolving trends, ideas and concerns within contemporary painting.

Contemporary artist Andre Hemer states “the painterly” shifts from belonging to a particular medium to operating across a range of visual modes. “The painterly is located in a visual way, still, but in terms of materiality it’s very ambiguous and between states.” Delving into this theory, ‘Between States’ demonstrates not only different levels of consciousness, but also explores the physical layers and processes involved in contemporary visual art, evoking an effortless flirtation between digital representation and the painted object.
