The Peter Macaulay exhibition in our elegant Cook Street gallery moves between representational and abstract paintings with Pollack-like streaks and splashes compared to the more elegant works inspired by Egon Schiele’s drawings.
The strong graphics contrast with the stark background of others and absurdity is a frequent theme, with, for example, an image produced with house paint and tea. Many are left without explanation and appear both unfinished yet resolved.
Above all there is a sense of Joie de vivre and a celebration of wit and sensitivity which is all true of Macaulay himself!
Exhibition runs until June 12th.
Audience: Specifically aimed at adults but is family friendly
