New British painting: part 1

(2003) New British painting: part 1

Record type: Art Design Item


This exhibition presents a snapshot of New British Painting. Introducing a young generation of artists, the exhibition celebrates contemporary painting through the current practice of their work. Many of the works have not been exhibited before, and some have been made especially for this exhibition. Marta Marcé, inspired by board games and geometrical structures, creates colourful abstract images. Katie Pratt will produce some new work for this exhibition, illustrating the sumptuous textural surfaces for which she is well known. The depth of Danny Rolph‘s work is achieved by layering sheets of industrial plastic roofing. By painting on the front and back of successive layers, his bold shapes and images are made more complex by the resulting real space relationships. Hans Scheirl (originally a filmmaker) will show a site-specific installation commissioned by the John Hansard Gallery. The careful installation of objects and the painting of a gallery room’s walls will provide the backdrop for the creation of the bright, schematic imagery. Clare Woods paints on aluminium, using the techniques of gestural abstract expressionism, thereby exploring lush textural surfaces
