Writhe & Jerk features five artists who each enjoy small battles with painting and why it continues to fascinate. These skirmishes occur between image, subject matter, materials, and a mental and physical battle to make the painting suddenly become foreign, alien, something from somewhere else.  These paintings put up quite a fight. Wrestling something out of the materials, their battered beauty is hard fought for, writhing and jerking on the canvas.

Rachel Busby has returned to exhibiting in 2013 after a lengthy period working ‘virtually’ in the art world, co-directing Re-title.com.
