Up, 2014, acrylic and oil on board, 41 x 30 cm (selected painting)

On a trajectory from Lascaux via aerosols, our bioaesthetic inheritance is cultivated beneath the inflated sun.  An accretion of stenciled hands in the darkness, then a trillion painted surfaces.

A group exhibition. A variation of structured gestures and analogue procedures. A compilation of paintings in 2015.

Paintings selected by each artist. Exhibition created and organised by playpaint.
