Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Medjesi-Jones, A
Abstract: In Andrea Medjesi-Jones’ paintings, thin bleeds of paint saturate the canvas while the very structure of the material is called into play through the pulling and releasing of threads. The addition of ‘beards’ acts both to emphasise and obscure the nature of the surfaces.

Slide presents three artists who engage with processes of layering and obscuring, and at moments revealing the origins of their works' making. They each share an approach to painting that could be described using the Dutch word 'lossigheydt', which roughly translated refers to a style of behaviour that is artfully effortless and has historically been used to describe the looseness of painted marks.

Participating artists were Gabriel Hartley, Andrea Medjesi-Jones and Sam Windett.
