WINDOW a new exhibition of paintings by artist Christopher Tansey features large scale works reflecting the artist’s views during lockdown.
Christopher Tansey’s work is semi auto-biographical and self-reflective, drawing on existence, memory, experience, person and place to inform his visual language and express largely emotional responses through the use of vaguely representational elements and motifs. Life is material for his work and he paints to remind himself.
Another primary theme/concern for Christopher is exploring the ‘Isness’ and ‘Whyness’ of painting and paintings, and trying to make sense of and explore the act of painting itself and what a painting is. The search for meaning is very much part of the creative process for him.
The preview will be from 5:00pm – 8:00pm on Tuesday 22 September.
Christopher Tansey will be on site for a second viewing event from 11:00am – 2:00pm on Saturday 10 October.
For COVID-19 safety, our building has been fitted with PPE and six visitors (including staff) will be allowed entry at one time. There is no need to book, but masks are kindly required.
