THE INFLUENCE OF PHOTOGRAPHY IN PAINTING
ROLLO Contemporary Art, 51 Cleveland Street, London W1T 4JH
3rd June – 10th July 2009
ROLLO Contemporary Art presents a group exhibition of international painters whose works display a relationship to the photographic medium. The works by these artists remain inherently ‘painterly’; displaying confident application of paint and visibly bold brushstrokes, yet in a variety of ways these paintings create a dialogue with photographic practice and place painting within a larger context of imagery. The exhibition continues in ROLLO Contemporary Art’s exhibition programme of curating thematic group shows to suggest themes in current art practice, tracing the influence of photography in contemporary painting.
