Andrew Smith
Colour Equilibrium

Colour Equilibrium features new work by Andrew Smith. Focusing on the perception of colour, his paintings explore the visual dynamic of taut shape and motif with ranges of colour juxtaposition that align our perception with a seemingly simple image environment.  



Andrew Smith’s practice includes exhibitions, most recently, Insight by Helfa Gelf at Oriel Mostyn; curatorial projects, Retake-Reinvent; public art commissions at Cardiff and Perm, Russia and initiating international exchanges for artists. Later this year he will be artist in residence at Sauerbier House, South Eastern Australia. As an educator, he was Director of Fine Art at Bangor University.

Nicky Hodge
low plains drifter

Nicky Hodge’s recent paintings take Drift, Raoul de Keyser’s final show of paintings at David Zwirner in London in 2015, as a starting point.  Revolving around a line of small paintings known as The Last Wall, the exhibition revisited some of the subjects that preoccupied de Keyser throughout his near 50-year career including compositions inspired by the Belgian lowlands where he lived all his life, as well as purely abstract works that interrogate the activity of painting itself.

In low plains drifter, Nicky Hodge shows small paintings in acrylic that jostle together in small groups creating meaning through their interrelationships and their playful titles. As art critic Libby Anson noted ‘She is not trying to recreate anything in the real world, rather she is illustrating a state of mind  … what determines that or that shape cannot be predetermined or defined. The process is as abstract as the shapes that appear to be the subject.’

18th - 20th May
Preview Thursday 17th May



Nicky Hodge lives in London. She graduated from Central St Martin’s in 1992 and was awarded a post-graduate diploma from Goldsmiths MFA in 2015. In the early 2000s her paintings were exhibited at Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art, including a solo exhibition in 2001. Recent exhibitions and projects include Small World, PS Mirabel, Manchester (2017), away with the birds, Deptford X (2017) and Creekside Open, selected by Alison Wilding, APT Gallery (2017).
