Helen Baker / Phyllida Barlow / Virginia Bodman / Sarah Bowker-Jones / Sean Edwards / Natalie Gale / Alexis Harding / Gabriel Hartley / Paul Merrick / Rudolf Polanszky / Sarah Kate Wilson………Malerei: Painting As Object investigates painting as a process, its guises and paint as a substance via eleven artists practices, including Helen Baker, Phyllida Barlow, Virginia Bodman, Sarah Bowker-Jones, Sean Edwards, Alexis Harding, Gabriel Hartley, Natalie Gale, Paul Merrrick, Rudolf Polanszky and Sarah Kate Wilson. Each artist shares a love of material and the qualities of their ‘thing-ness’, whether it’s oozing oil paint, found objects, performance or jesmonite. The artists however do not remain slavish to the visceral but also embody and appropriate particular areas of Paintings’ history in their multidisciplinary practices. Malerei: Painting As Object will reveal a painterly investigation of the Modernist concern ‘objecthood’, Postmodern eclecticism and the post-production – trend of continuous re-working.
