We love New York?

Helen Baker-Alder, Jane Millican

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

The work of the artists in this exhibition is held together by the common themes Heritage, Irony, Politics, Irreverence, Humour, Being 'British'. Helen Baker’s work examines the politics of heritage. Inspired by a residency in Rome, these new works, Stop and Search, in gouache on gesso-ed board, carry these messages in mosaic like form. These texts emphasise the legalities that inform our political landscape and will be our bequest. Jane Millican’s labour intensive drawings fool the eye and fascinate. A slowly executed trompe - l’oeil pencil drawing might at first appear to be a quickly executed gestural painting. These images explore authenticity as material and this theme is emphasised by the creation of landscapes such as described by J. G. Ballard. They are both banal and terrifying in their exploration of a hideous future.
