Tim RenshawImages in the Vaguest Sense
12 April to 18 May 2008 V22 Dalston
Someone once said that painting means the painting of space. Each painting inImages in the Vaguest Senseoperates like a construction site assembled from colour surfaces and a mass of drawn lines. Allusions to architecture are never far from Renshaw’s work, this provides each painting with a narrative which in turn motivates the design and the rhythm of the inscriptions. However, what may count as ‘architecture’ is a question that runs through the exhibition. The paintings represent a number of different sites, ranging from concrete structures such asbunkerandstairwell,to oblique geometries in the architecture of newsprint, to cartoon 'Zs' that build a kind of drifting space.
‘The title of the show refers to the belief that images tend to form even in the most abstract of spaces. It also suggests that perception is a vague sense and that what we think we see is not always that simple.’ Tim Renshaw
