New Work - Painting
Amy Dury & Philip Maltman
"The most accurate map of the world is the world itself. The maps that we use in everyday life deliberately exclude some details and emphasise others. By design, they are imperfect representations of the real thing. Paintings are the same."
Guided by Dury and Maltman, this exhibition is a tour of
personal narratives in the form of paint on canvas, board and
paper. The artists act as unreliable mediators between their
subjects and the viewer, choosing where to omit and where to
add details. They are not answerable to the true nature of the
things that they paint, but to their own private and individual
impressions of them.
