AboutDebbie Bell, Jo Bruton, Noel Forster, Yvonne Hindle, Jenny Jennings, Paul Peden, Katie Pratt and DJ Simpson
Curated by Helen Baker, the second in Transition's series of painting exhibitions draws together eight artists who use and abuse recognised practices in abstract painting. This mutinous crew are self aware and capable of double-dealing as they swerve back and forth between organisation and impulse. Many of the artists reclaim systems of production, only to throw the viewer off course by introducing the problematic and employing chance or error. Others defy categorisation by puncturing established processes with spontaneity and intuition. Working Against the System is documented in a new publication, About Painting by Transition Editions, which will be launched at the preview.
