Group show based on the work of the late British artist Trevor Shearer


Six contemporary artists; Tonico Lemos Auad, Miroslaw Balka, Massimo Bartolini, Jean-Philippe Dordolo, Jean-Luc Moulène and Alison Turnbull have each selected a work (of their own) that they feel resonates with that of the late British artist Trevor Shearer. Trevor Shearer (1958 — 2013) was an artist whose approach was known to his colleagues and students at Byam Shaw School of Art and Central Saint Martins where he taught, but whose work has rarely been shown. He died at the beginning of 2013, leaving behind the largely unseen results of a practice that engaged with some of the most profound problems regarding art's relationship to transience, to perceptual experience, and to the imagination's capacity for reinvention. This exhibition will show how Shearer's art, virtually unseen until now, shares a formal and conceptual context with those of his contemporaries.
