NSA members Bo Hilton and Jack Paffet are taking part in The Shape of Colour – a group show at the PZ Gallery in Penzance. This show brings together four artists who share common concerns. Allowing the autonomy of painting to shape the final image is an interest that runs throughout the exhibition.
The works are united by their retinal quality. A strong sense of colour, pattern and painterly brush marks can be seen throughout the show. Each piece treads the line between figuration and abstraction, fragments of the natural world and memories become starting points, but never solid in their formation. The paintings become amalgamations of visual references, which incorporate emotional and psychological responses to these observations. The ambiguous nature of the works encourage the viewer to question and decipher the spaces in front of them.
The show runs from 20th – 30th May at the PZ Gallery, 7 Coinagehall St, Penzance TR18 4AY
