Communication and isolation are at the heart of Benedict Pulsford‘s paintings, which convey ‘socially negotiated relationships’ through abstracted compositions that suggest objects, interactions and moods. Curated by Neal Brown, the exhibition includes contextual works from an intergenerational family of artists – Benedict Pulsford’s father Charles Pulsford, stepfather Robert Crawford and young son Leonard Pulsford.
Until 3 March 2017, ARTHOUSE1, 45 Grange Road, Bermondsey, London SE1.

Gebilde painters
Considering the definitions of artist and painter since the advent of conceptual art, this exhibition brings together works by 11 artists whose work seeks to explore how the content of a painting materialises and whether or not, for instance, a ‘mental picture’ is distinct from a ‘concept’.
2-5 March 2017, 5th Base Gallery, 23 Heneage Street, London E1.

The Solar Pessimist
John Lawrence, the winner of the second Kim Fielding Award, presents a large-scale light and sound installation in collaboration with actor Peter Hugo Daly and musician Tim Eve.
