Excerpt from email discussion between Tom Cole, James Harrison, Alex Crocker and Richard Forbes-Hamilton March 2012 TC: Who and what are the We and Images within the exhibition title? JH: The title of the show is from a paraphrased quote by one of our old tutors at Brighton. He was asked if his paintings served a purpose and answered yes of course they do, we need these images like we need dreams at night". The 'We' I suppose, is essentially we three artists and the images talked of in the title are the ones hanging in the show and found in the publication. However, we are interested in a wider application. Not just us and the paintings we make but in a wider sense. That whilst we live in a time with a supposed over abundance of imagery, finding resonant images is still a rare and special occurrence. We decided on the title because we are interested in the way certain images resonate with us and the importance of finding adequate images for our time.
