Oriel Q - Queens Hall Gallery

Attesa, the new show at Oriel Q, opened with great success on Saturday 7 January.

Artists Lee Williams, Jonathan Anderson and Mark Halliday, explored the meaning of ‘Attesa’ and produced diverse works in relation to the notion…

‘Attesa’ means hope or expectation and was famously written on the backs of Lucio Fontana’s slashed canvases series.

The works on show, incorporating painting, drawing and sculpture, focus on the industrial. All the artists have experience of heavy industry and through this heritage, each artist questions the nature of this trade, from its glorious past, unsettled present and its future.

The materiality of common industrial products, in this case coal and iron, is at once, both suggested and used literally. Ideas of trade and commerce abound with the artists displaying a gratitude to the industry of the past and supportive of its essential future.

Free exhibition continues until Saturday 18 February with the gallery open Wednesdays to Saturdays between 10am and 5pm. For further details, please visit the website or contact Lynne Crompton…
