Enzo Marra and Tom Palin exhibit together for first time

24th October-24th November, Cornerstone Gallery, Liverpool Hope University Creative Campus, Shaw Street, Shaw Street, L6 1HP

The Cornerstone Gallery will pair the work of Enzo Marra and Tom Palin together for the first time.

Both artists clearly enjoy the materiality of paint which is at times, rooted within figuration yet not overtly representational. Marra’s work often looks toward the artworld and the art historical for key references whilst Palin’s work

contains a gradual layering of paint which often eschews the figure and narrative in favour of a ‘concern for the fundamental constituents of the painted object: surface, vehicle, support, and time’.

Marra is currently exhibiting as part of John Moores Painting Prize, Liverpool and studied MA Painting at University of Brighton.

Tom Palin exhibited two works at London’s Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, 2016 and is currently studying for a PhD at The Royal College of Art, London. Tom also teaches Fine Art at Leeds College of Art.

The exhibition runs from 24th October-24th November. The Private View is on 27th October 6-9pm
