The Continuous Image at Oceans Apart Gallery, Salford 17 January — 14 February 2020 Entrance is free — Visit now

The Continuous Image at Oceans Apart Studios in Salford is an exhibition of contemporary painting by six artists based in London, Manchester and Oslo. It presents groups of paintings as sets of objects relating to each other in a specific space and to the energy around them.

Each of the artists seek active images; open, malleable and, at times, unstable forms and spaces. Rather than envisioning complete images they work consciously without a known end.  Paintings act as thought forms that emerge slowly out of the process of painting itself. There is an interest in avoiding, upending, protracting, or stopping before or beyond resolution, finding power in dynamic economical approaches which understate and enfold a subject. Partial images come together and dissolve again, their painterly presence reaching out into the surrounding space.
