Paintings by eight artists


The paintings by the eight artists in this exhibition share a sense of improvisation. Like the act of drawing, they are a way for the artist to work through ideas and pose questions. Their marks have been made with a speed and spontaneity, executed quickly to capture changing thoughts and situations.

Some of the artists have been drawn to a particular location or subject, repeatedly, to better understand it; tapping away till it reveals itself. For others, there is an underlying questioning of the social and political landscape of the world today.

Memory, and its fluid versions of truth, often acts as a source or starting point, to revisit, to reimagine. From the commonplace to the cosmic,  the eight artists in this exhibition are questioning with paint, What is this place?
