George Shaw: The Sly and Unseen Day

25 May - 3 Jul 2011, Free

Overview

This solo exhibition by British artist George Shaw brings together paintings made over the past 15 years which chart the urban landscape of his childhood home on the Tile Hill Estate in Coventry. Painted in Humbrol enamels, more usually associated with boyhood model-making, and based on photographs, Shaw’s works revisit landmarks remembered from his youth. Meticulously painted houses, pubs, underpasses and parks become autobiographical notes, frozen in time. Conflating memory and present day reality, Shaw’s works take on an uncanny quality, alluding to a murkier side of contemporary society and collective subconscious.

A BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art touring exhibition curated by Laurence Sillars.
