Aleph Contemporary present Henry Ward & Mark Wright curated by Alistair Hicks - Lost in Abstraction 1, 2, 3

Alistair Hicks, author and former curator of Deutsche Bank, curates an exhibition by two leading British artists in ‘Henry Ward and Mark Wright: Lost in Abstraction 1, 2, 3’. Audiences are encouraged to join Hicks’ exploration of the pleasure of disorientation when caught adrift in a seemingly anti-referential abstract space of mere artistic gesture.

The exhibition inspires child-like play in resisting to decode the abstracted languages Ward and Wright have respectively built. While Ward’s artistic process is made clear through the sum of its melding parts, Wright’s use of material and media influences the various moods of his pieces; left open for you to dive into. With both artists’ works, the onus is on the viewer to react.
