30 November 2012 – 9 January 2013
Josh Lilley is pleased to announce the opening of Something New, a group show featuring Analia Saban, Belén, Christof Mascher, Gabriel Hartley, Marita Fraser, Nicholas Hatfull, Nick Goss, Robert Pratt and Ruairiadh O'Connell.
The exhibition provides gallery and associated artists with the opportunity to present new works unattached from the rigours of a specific thematic. In many cases, the works included are clearly linked by interests in materiality, process and an attraction to the visceral. Colour, form and a generosity of expression are constants throughout. However the impetus comes more from a desire to bring together certain artists into one context, rather than exploring a specific style, vision or empathy within their respective practices. Many of the artists studied together in the past or have maintained friendships since. Such a show allows new dialogues to be explored by each of them, giving the audience also a renewed insight into their works.
