This exhibition brings together three artists whose work inhabits a delicate grey area between factual imagery, subjective recall, and painterly interaction. We all see what we want to in a work of art, whether it is violence, landscape, still life, or abstraction. The visceral materiality of paint can convey a multitude of developing possibilities whilst avoiding specific depiction. It is relatively simple for a work of art to have definitive intentionality. It is quite another thing to be ambiguous without ambivalence.

No one seems to be sure what the decline of modernism's cultural influence, beginning sometime in the 1950's and 60's, has led to. The return of narrative and ornament in the art and architecture of the 1970's suggested an effort to break with the immediate past, but the privileging of rationalism as a guiding social order evident in the idea of markets finding their perfect equilibrium continues to dominate economic discourse, despite the occasionally irrational results.
