The observations made in paint by the artists in ‘A Sort of Night to the Mind, A Kind of Night for our Thoughts’ connect with the imaginative potential of material on a surface. The works presented here variously engage with the ambiguities of what is observable or recognisable,
and they acknowledge the emotive potential of point of view. Side stepping through usage the oppositional mind set that pits one term against an other, they demonstrate the continued relevance and inextricability of illusion and materiality in painting

Abstract

Touring exhibition.
The observations made in paint by the artists in ‘A Sort of Night to the Mind, A Kind of Night for our Thoughts’ connect with the imaginative potential of material on a surface. The works presented here variously engage with the ambiguities of what is observable or recognisable,
and they acknowledge the emotive potential of point of view. Side stepping through usage the oppositional mind set that pits one term against an other, they demonstrate the continued relevance and inextricability of illusion and materiality in painting
