Established as a commercial gallery with an emphasis on experimental and innovative practices, Artereal Gallery has built a strong reputation and some serious street-cred for presenting risk-taking and stimulating exhibitions by artists working at the forefront of contemporary practice.
PAINT16 is a lyrical cacophony of colour, falling, flowing, folding, off the wall, over the wall, on to the floor. Painting as a wall-based flat plane is both acknowledged and challenged by the artists of PAINT16, Lara Merrett, Hyun-Hee Lee and Mark Titmarsh, for their contemporary ‘beyond painting’ approaches to making art.
Zan Wimberley works across photography and video to explore ideas surrounding mortality, immortality and mourning in a post-internet, twenty-first century context. By creating artworks which negotiate the space between the heavy and almost incomprehensible reality of death and the absurd or macabre nature with which it is often met in contemporary society, Wimberley’s work offers a thoughtful and poetic series of ruminations on the human condition.
