Our relationship with the social screen and its interfaces aren’t simply a visual one, it has evolved from being a tool that we use at our leisure, to a necessary conduit for social interaction, pavlovian in its schema and invisible in its ubiquity, the screen is perhaps animating the threshold of our dematerialized condition.

 

Painting now takes its place in the world alongside and within this dominant way of seeing, reconfiguring our relationship and understanding to what is ‘real’, tactile and physical.

 

For many the screen conveys the first encounter with new works of art, often replacing the reality experience entirely. Does this environment create an underlying pressure for artists to make work that is more screenable, quicker to apprehend, less concerned with scale and depth? Or, does it reinvigorate

the ‘real’ and the haptic? Can we view work with the same engagement as before, can we still ‘look’ at

it in the same way.

 

This exhibition brings together artists whos works are all extremely physical and tactile in their material approach. Something which simply cannot be experienced or sensed on screen.
