Lures by John Atherton, James Low & Fernando M. Romero

Join us for a talk with the show’s artists

When: Saturday 28th March 2020, from 2pm

Planes of information and notes of some relation are seen here broadening a purpose from whence a viewer may depart. ‘Lures’ selected by Ken Turner during the annual MFA graduate exhibitions in 2019 issues a comforting level of familiarity between the tones and investigations of John Atherton, James Low and Fernando M. Romero. Language, translation and the manipulation of multiple sources including those outside of the strictly visual are at play. The three artists employ blurred lines, torn fragments and illusory surfaces, whereupon any representational material functions like a hidden clue or a floating monad. In so doing, these works approach the heterogeneous nature of image construction as a post-conceptual practice promoting its ever-expanding significance whilst embracing the lures of its conventions.


The show runs from Saturday 14th March – Saturday 18th April

Opening hours: Thursday to Saturday 11am-5pm
