Wolstenholme Projects – The Salon

Exhibition ImageThe Salon at 11 Wolstenholme Sq.
Tuesday 14 – Sunday 19 October 2008
A selection of contemporary painting, drawing and video art. Welcome to the salon! Join us in a land of golden frames, wide landscapes, fleshy nudes and exuberant still life works.

Where demons of etching scream from dusty corners and city streets curl in maps of desire. Fragments of eternal realities and glimpses of other worlds embrace in a terminal dance of oily fluids.

imageConstellations of contemporary paintings, etchings, drawings and film, of two parts. Gathered on the banks of the River Lea, Hackney, London, examined, selected and relocated to the Mersey, Liverpool, this salon explores traditional subject matter, densely hung and re-framed for modern eyes.
