Limited Space

15 June – 9 July 2022

SIMON BLAU

The state of the world is problematic the way a painting is problematic. In both, relationship is all important. In these works, illusory space—that produced by mirrors—forms the main subject. Other works are concerned with areas of confrontation—land and sea, land and sky—where evidence of troubled relationship is often most visible. Contemplating such spatial zones through painting, and the activities that exist (or fail to exist) within them, has been a way of both questioning and appealing for meaning within an otherwise confusing world.
