Click to enlargeKATE LYDDON AND JOHN SUMMERS : PRIMEVAL
Oct 4 - 27, 2019
There was a discarded title for this show: the Act of Creation. Bold and somehow bland - there are of course prime settings for the act of creation: the Sistine chapel, and the Bake-Off tent, and any maternity ward or cinematically in a taxi racing to get there or indeed proverbially in the fields interrupting your work. And, of course, almost prosaically by comparison, in the studio of an artist.
 
In this case two artists who both work in painting and sculpture in a figurative idiom. Sort of. Because although the human form is crucial, the centre of their thought and action, at times it strays very far from its representational template and stabilises as an inchoate material mass, forms rising from the mud or out of the mist and never quite coalescing, struggling to be born.
