About

'Paint and sculpture work together to both create a balance and offer a counterpoint in the dynamic of this show. Murray O'Grady, Sarah Shoughi and Mark Walker offer very contrasting sculptural work, while Phoebe Mitchell and Alexander Clarke are showing abstract paintings, offering the contrasting geometries of the ovoid and the square, that present wide horizons for interpretive possibilities. Tom Burton's monochrome paintings-as-objects are both the story of those objects and their narrators at the same time. If we need to establish contextual relationships between the works of these artists, as the palimpsest for a theme for this show, then it is their attention to detail, and the fact that in their works ‘object' tends to overrule ‘subject', but most of all, the understated ‘pomp' of their work, which brings both an irony to the title of the show and creates the synergy between their works.'
