AboutPRIME is a showcase of the future of contemporary painting, bringing together 10 artists working in the medium.
The artists involved in PRIME seek to reexamine established ideas about the painted form and the traditional relationship between work and exhibition space.
A central theme is the space of the painted surface and its interaction with both the viewer and the situated environment, whilst other works will explore the physicality of the medium itself.
The exhibition features artists whose primary interests concern the image, from the magazine advert to the old master, and a struggle to reconcile the modern and historic with personal concerns. The removal of images from original context forces reconsideration of the familiar and past and present are channelled into one picture plane to create a new aesthetic.
PRIME will be a fresh and dynamic look at painting today without curatorial restrictions.
Featuring work by Lewis Acott, Fern Dixon, Lisa Huxley-Blythe, Robert Mead, Alice Mendelowitz, Ricky Reveley, Emily Rubner, Connie Sides, Jasper Wilson and Joe Wilson
