AboutFollowing on from the recent Crash Open Salon show, the Charlie Dutton Gallery invites 4 artists from the Salon exhibition to show new works and asks them to select another artist of their choice as well.
Isha Bohling has selected Ian Monroe
Nigel Massey brings along Joel Tomlin
Selma Parlour has invited John Chilver
Gavin Toye asked Laura Bygrave
This exhibition brings together artists and their chosen representative artists that have in some way subconsciously engaged together to create another dimension, where works can be ambivalently connected.
In Selma's work thin washes of extremely subtle colours have been handled with such exactitude that they create an illuminating sense of depth whilst acknowledging the flatness of the canvas. This notion of flatness is parallel in Gavin's brushwork; explosive marks that point to a subject elsewhere and paint that is removed and moved on the surface of the picture plane. The surface is explored in Isha's work, where dripping wax balances upon paint, paint striving for a sense of harmony. Nigel is the inter-disciplinarian of the group, transcending the boundaries of painting and developing his work through the act of squashing hidden areas of our surroundings in Perspex; creating containers of space.
