PayneShurvell is proud to present its first show, A Bright and Guilty Place. Thirteen artists, working in mixed-media, interpret the notion of mapping and ‘place’. The title of the exhibition, A Bright and Guilty Place, is taken from Orson Welles’ Lady of Shanghai in which the classic hall of mirrors climax sequence intertwines the virtual and the actual.
Among the highlights are a ‘deerskin’ painting by Lucy Wood, a curious reworking of a page from London’s A-Z by Dan Hays, delicate 3-D structures of Polish shop fronts by Anka Dabrowska, Derek Ogbourne’s intricate drawing of a map of England, Ian Whittlesea’s painting of all the addresses of Rothko’s studios and a floor installation maze by Mary Yacoob.
