Puce Moment takes it's title from the 1949 short film by Kenneth Anger in which 1920s starlet, Yvonne Marquis, idly browses through her vibrantly coloured wardrobe. This recreation of Hollywood silent era decadence in luscious colour is hard to place, its shaky, hand-held camera work giving it a personal yet curiously contemporary edge. The exhibition Puce Moment features four painters who revel in glorious vulgarity. Whether through attitude, subject matter or the style and appearance of their paintings, the artists harness crude attributes to boldly transform and subvert their subjects into visually emphatic, painterly moments.
