AboutGrosvenor Gallery is pleased to present Variant Space, a group show.
Variant space suggests an alternate view of space, which is touched on by each of these artists in different aspects of their practice. This can be a reimagining of space as a tangible form, the creation of a physical presence that exceeds the 2-dimensional picture plane, or the invention of an alternate dream-like reality.
Rebecca Glover addresses space directly, creating dynamic paintings and installations in which she is affected by space, or she affects it, opening it up, making it tangible. Justin Fitzpatrick paints âentities' made of assorted objects drawn from music, art history, and dreams. Miriam Maselkowski also works with dreams. They provide her with a setting and narrative which she can manipulate and mould freely, painting landscapes of iconic and simplified forms.
Katharine Prendergast takes inspiration from architecture, and plays with the contradiction between surface and form in her paintings. For this show, George Winks is installing a âcalibrated mirror field' made up of hundreds of small mirrors, which, when viewed from a specific point, collects different colours from the surrounding space to create a unified image.
