Aristotle observed that 'Every body that has a soul in it must, as we have said, be capable of touch' and that it was only this sense that a conscious creature must have in order to 'be'.

About

Candida Stevens Gallery brings together four inimitable, abstract artists - Julian Brown, Celia Cook, Jane Harris and Mali Morris RA - to look at how contemporary painting finds itself in agreement with this sentiment. Using their 'touch', they harness colour, sound, depth and perspectival looking, to prioritise this idea and express what it is to 'be' in the world. The pleasures in these paintings arise not simply from physical and surface sensation alone but from the signs of the mind thinking. Here these artists' perceptions present us with a specialised version of touch, and touch the foundation for what is seen.
