The Gerald Moore Gallery is pleased to present Next:Previous, a group exhibition curated by Steven Scott that brings together works from eight artists with practices established in diverse fields to offer correlations between form and reference, concurrency, and possibility. The exhibition will run from 2nd to 30th September 2023 and includes pieces by Andy Bannister, Frederick Bell, Andrew Bick, Peter Downsbrough, Susan Morris, Nicola Rae, Steven Scott, and Clare Strand. The private view will be on Friday 1st September 5 – 8pm.
The selection of works for this exhibition began from structural concerns centred around dual and multiple images and proposed interrelationships between the temporal sequence and the spatial array. It is hoped that the perceived alignments between these works might suggest such bi-partite flows and distributed delays.
Works include a dual painting by Andrew Bick titled OGVGGT [double echo] and a doubled tapestry by Susan Morris titled Binary Tapestry & Binary Tapestry (Reversal) that incorporate different modes of translation in alternating shifts between their concurrent states and their layered references.
Clare Strand’s Spaceland/Flatland consists of darkroom generated images and sculptural objects that form spatial sequences and shape-shifting arrays in transitions between material and reference as translations while a projection piece by Nicolas Rae transposes digital recordings of auroral data from Jupiter between image and sound.
Fredrick Bell’s paintings of sequenced forms describe both directional flows and mapped positions as overlapping events across four panels, and a print by Peter Downsbrough reminds us how repetition and mirroring can slow the immediacy of language; here rendering it concrete in the collapsing of form and content.
Andy Bannister adopts pictorial and schematic forms in a dual drawing titled Container/Contained/Sellafield ’16 to allude to nuclear half-life and an unknowable future, and the light and photogram works by Steven Scott attempt to frame perceptions of phasing and parallax shifts as a visual experience that maintains a potential for future concurrencies.
The exhibition is open every Saturday 10am to 4pm until 30th September 2023 or by appointment for other days.

The Gerald Moore Gallery is a young centre for modern and contemporary art with learning at its heart. Opened in April 2012, in Mottingham, the gallery is uniquely set within the grounds of Eltham College and is a valuable resource for the students and the local community. The gallery has gained momentum hosting some exciting exhibitions including works by Matisse, Louise Bourgeois and Cornelia Parker, whilst supporting emerging local artists. In unison with the exhibitions, the gallery's outreach programme works with local community groups, teachers and schools, creating lasting relationships with our locality. Gerald Moore Gallery was made possible with the foresight and generosity of Old Elthamian, Dr Gerald Moore, many of whose works are archived at the gallery and who has a permanent exhibition on display.
