In some ways this exhibition could be described as a selective landscape about recent landscape painting. It’s a show that takes in points of view from very young emerging artists to artists with long ‘track records’, and brings them together as a kind of topography that reflects the extent to which landscape still matters. There are images of home, of suburban streets, of dreamscapes, of ‘rugged mountain ranges’, rural scenes from a car window and scenes from lands far away. There are paintings and drawings and photographs. Styles and approaches abound. Some are direct and matter-of-fact; others are elusive and metaphorical. But one thing holds these works together - each of them, in some way, offers a reflection on our relationship to place and belonging.
