Nothing in a portrait is a matter of indifference.  Gesture, grimace, clothing, decor even – all must combine to realize a character (Charles Baudelaire).  In a portrait the artist attempts to condense the competing references and history about a person into a single image, something understandable in a momentary glance.

For our first 2016 show we have invited five artists to exhibit work with their own take on portraiture.

Private View: Thursday 17th March, 8pm
Exhibition Runs: 18th March – 1st May
