Art Now: Strange Solution

Alice Channer, Fourteenth Scarf Drawing 2007

This exhibition brings together five artists whose paintings, sculptures and installations take found objects, images or substances as a starting point. They then amend, transform or juxtapose these existing things or matter so there is a sense of their original use or function but also a new relationship with each other and with the viewer. Through a process of reduction and abstraction, the resulting artworks have a minimalist, even impoverished aesthetic. Often the work has a very personal, 'lived' feeling and narratives are evoked but never spelled out. The artists are Karla Black, Alice Channer, Dee Ferris, Anthea Hamilton and Katy Moran.
