‘Synonym’ is an exhibition featuring three painters who are fans of abstraction from the previous century. Here the artists explore the dialogue between their own practices and respective lexicons with reference to the modernist canon. Abstract painting has long been posited as language; with each proponent developing works through their own schemata. A call and response of mark making subject to selection, editing and syntax. The individual freedom of abstraction is celebrated herein. The artists take a plunderous approach to influences such as the ‘St. Ives School’ on their search for the volcanic turbulence of light and colour.
