Information

Paint Talk and GALLERY46 are delighted to present ‘Knocking It Out Of The Park’, a group show of work by Tom Hardwick-Allan, Klaas Op De Beéck, Richard Burton, Christabel MacGreevy, Alexi Marshall, Sarah Pickstone, Sofya Shpurova and Pawel Sliwinski. 

‘Knocking it out of the park’ is the sequel to Paint Talk’s inaugural group show at GALLERY46 in April, 2021.
Following The First Swing of the Bat, we have a clean hit which preferably clears the stands. A large crack permeates the night air, reverberates, echoing against collective joint inhalation. There is no time to dwell on the heat nor moisture loitering at every turn. We are unquestionably in the thick of it, the noise is deafening, time moves slower and faster simultaneously. Knocking it out of the park alludes to the constant onslaught of departures and arrivals in the studio throughout the process of creation. 

Within the sphere of current painting, Paint Talk seeks to spotlight paintings by painters which undoubtedly occupy a world all of their own. Distinct languages which articulate unique and somewhat separate conversations housed under one roof.  

A common thread is a consideration of futures past, each artists practice engages with painted time, unflinching. Materiality, methodology and conceptual grounding are unanimous to each artist, they are bound by their expansive nature, a feeling of careful, clear delineation. Formally there are broad reaches in every direction, abstract construction, generous figuration, tight and regimented representation, colour and form woven in tapestry, layers chiselled and carved in woodblock, spaces which hold figuration alongside free abstraction, and work which evades strict categorisation. 

Knocking it out of the park, a question of utopian outcomes, would a clean hit suffice? Probably. Taking off, sustaining prolonged flight and surpassing all recognisable terrain, a highly sought after destination, which has many faces.

A common thread is a consideration of futures past, each artists practice engages with painted time, unflinching. Materiality, methodology and conceptual grounding are fairly unanimous to each artist, they are bound by their expansive nature, a feeling of careful, clear delineation.
