Friday 18 July 2014 – Saturday 30 August 2014
Opening Hours: Monday - Saturday 10am - 5.30pm

An exhibition of recent paintings by Rachel Busby and David Webb, who each make work grounded in memory, nostalgia and a sense of place; each in their own way, appearing to weave a tentative path that fluctuates between representation and abstraction.

Both artists draw references from rich personal histories and the powerful agency of particular objects, locations and narratives. Rather than coalesce into tangible landscapes, interiors or still life imagery however, these allusions are fragmented, mapped out and reworked to capture an essence within their subject’s origin – as opposed a direct representation in paint. Alternative vocabularies are built through recurrent motifs, compositional structures and a layering of gesture, form, colour and surface.

A new essay by Bristol based writer and art historian Lizzie Lloyd will accompany the exhibition.
