Robin Megannity - Call of the Void
Workplace is delighted to present Call of the Void, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Manchester based artist Robin Megannity. The exhibition explores Megannity’s endeavour to hold paradoxical or contrary sentiments within his painting that connect the ubiquitous with the sublime.
L’appel du vide, is a French phrase which literally means “the call of the void,” and describes the widely experienced phenomena of the strong or compelling urge one might feel to jump or fall from a high place, such as from a tall building or precipitously soaring cliff. It is a vision of a dangerous action that appears like a flash across previously calm or disinterested thoughts exposing a shift, or psychological quiver, between the conscious and unconscious mind.
