Artwork of the week features a new painting by Simon McAuley, ‘untitled, 2016’. This painting is one of several we will be exhibiting from April 9 to Aprill 21st, in our Gallery 2. The exhibition, titled Strange quarks, is a solo showcase of Simon’s most recent explorations in painting.
“My painting practice absorbs some ideas from my photographic work. The two media differ and are often squashed together. I think that photography is better compared to literature, (in the broadest sense) than to painting. I like this idea as it leaves painting lacking with an insubstantial material leftover. For me this reduces paint and finds itself within my practice as something to elaborate into a basic form. Often via something random or unplanned.”
Strange quarks previews on the 8th of April from 5 – 7pm. All welcome.
