Trilogy is a group show by artists Julien Masson, Roger Jarvis and Ian Kirkpatrick. It will take place at the Harbour Lights Gallery in Southampton from July 26 to August 21, 2010.
All three artists in Trilogy will present “serialized” works (i.e. works as part of a sequence or as sequels to one another). Julien Masson’s work explores progressions—and regressions—of paint as it is variously built up and stripped away to form complex genealogical patterns. Roger Jarvis is concerned with the macroscopic exploration of the everyday: his paintings transform traditional still lives into abstractions through his use of cinematic “close up” viewpoints. Ian Kirkpatrick’s paintings tackle art history itself as their subject—compressing centuries of visual motifs, signs, and symbols into dense visual “collisions” between past and present.
The launch of Trilogy will happen at Harbour Lights Cinema (click here for map) on July 25 from 7:00 – 9:00pm. Wine, refreshments, and light snacks will be served.
