Landscapes, People, Buildings
Ewan Murray

Landscapes, People, Buildings is an exhibition of new work by Ewan Murray that examines the material qualities and illusionistic potential of painting. Ewan thinks of painting as a way to structure and find meaning in the things that we see. An explorative studio practice and engagement with the history of the medium are central to the development of his work. His paintings are often small in scale, and pay close attention to formal editing processes such as cutting, erasure and collage. The works in the exhibition consider the construction of traditional easel painting supports and set up dialogues between abstract marks, depictions of figures, architecture, and pictorial space.

Friday 7 April, 6 – 9pm

Exhibition open:
Saturday 8 April – Sunday 30 April
Fri – Sun, 12-5pm or by appointment
