Solo | Rob Gutteridge

From a lifetime of researching, drawing and painting the human figure, Rob Gutteridge's work evidences a keen appreciation of anatomy, structure and form. This exhibition surveys Gutteridge's works from the last few years, following
his 2011-12 residency in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and 2012 residency in Beijing, China; two recent significant periods
that have impacted positively upon Gutteridge's art making practice.

Artist Statement:

"Imagination disprisons the soul from the fact" (Coleridge paraphrased)

If I step outside myself, I would say these paintings and drawings, with meanings intangible, come from the mind of an artist who is part visionary-romantic, and part empirical-researcher. How can the rational depiction of form and space give rise to the irrational? In this exhibition the world of dreams comes close to providing a mutable spatial and temporal framework, capable of accommodating disparate experiences in pictorial space. In art it is more important to be convincing than truthful. In life, with discretion, the opposite is the case.
