Refractive Pool: Contemporary Painting in Liverpool

See the work of local artists in a new exhibition borne from a project aiming to celebrate the diversity of painting in the city today.

The Refractive Pool project, which started in 2019, has explored contemporary painting in the city through events, a book and online resources, highlighting the diverse range of artists and painting styles, and culminates in this exhibition. Liverpool-based artists Josie Jenkins and Brendan Lyons have selected and curated the exhibition, which will feature 20 local artists to give an overview of the community of painters based in the city. The Refractive Pool book will feature 40 Liverpool-based artists who work with paint and will include exclusive new poetry by Paul Farley.
