Join us for the preview of Trace and Wedge curated by Paul Cordwell and featuring work by David Alker, Rick Copsey, Samantha Donnelly, Nick Jordan and Rebecca Sitar.

In ‘Tracer and Wedge’ the small scale of the works exhibited demands an enforced intimacy with the viewer. An intimacy unconcerned with the surrounding architecture; except as a vertical support for the isolated sparring between surface and eye.

In that moment the containing rectangle of a picture surface can act as a platform for material play, an impossible spatial conundrum, or an idiosyncratic dissection and re-staging of historical models for fixing visual information.

So, microscopically small areas of paint palettes can transmute into gothic seascapes; severe formal signage allude to senses other than the optical; archaic dioramas can be unpicked and restaged as storyboarded narratives of the paintings own construction, whilst spartan still lifes start to drift away from a painterly and descriptive legibility.

However, edited from the chaos of the real world, all act as a temporary congealing of the movement of thought into a stubbornly solid object event; all allude to actions and forces which escape the controlling stamp of visibility.
