‘As exciting as this is, imagine how exciting the collapse will be‘ Dave Hickey
With an abundance of information and a multi-layered reality – by which we refer to as the world around us – our response is to create within our own terms, taking a reviewing, self-inquiring and self asserting position.
The show places the artists both in the physical present and the anticipated future. We propose a timeless human condition in a world oversaturated with images and digital data, a world that has multiple surfaces.
Without the utopian or dystopian futures, what is left behind is a reality that is suspicious to images, in which we find ourselves drowning.
The show is a reflection of a diversity of practice, perspectives, political and cultural attitudes, with work ranging from painting, where painting becomes a sculptural medium, sculpture as image, the experience of the present under the form of performance, moving image, installation and photography.

Take One Picture 2017 – Myatt Garden Primary School
All year groups at Myatt Garden Primary School focused for an entire week on the picture and subsequently all their learning and creative outpourings were inspired by ‘Penelope with the Suitors’.
I am extremely proud of the children’s creativity and the whole schools energy and skill in delivering this project. The exhibition displays not only every child’s work in the school, but the excitement and enthusiasm of their learning.
Well done Myatt Garden!

Townly Cooke Exhibition
5th – 9th April 2017
Townly was a highly accomplished painter and photographer. His paintings, which meld figuration with elements of abstraction, explore the nature of representation in relation to the history of art, with special reference to his favourite art-historical era, Post-Impressionism.
The exhibition will present a selection of Townly’s last works, reflecting his preoccupations at the time of his untimely death. It will include the series of paintings Double Degas, a meditation on the 19th century French artist Townly particularly admired; Darkroom Tent, which poses questions about photography and reality; and on a more intimate scale, some sensitive drawings from his sketchbooks.
