JAKE WALKER & MARK RODDA
THE INLAND SEA
SAT 20 SEPTEMBER UNTIL SAT 14 OCTOBER 2007
Jake Walker customises cultural expectations and artistic conventions in his multi-dimensional paintings. Artistic genres and traditional symbols are materially reshaped, re-combined and melded to suit Walker's own conceptual and retinal designs. Walker's visual universe is a highly nuanced world that springs into existence via his continued exploration of generative source material, both cultural and familial.
In Mark Rodda's works no two pictures are painted using the same rules. The use of any dogmatic or systematic framework is avoided, however among these allegorical works and uncouth abstracts are hints of recurrent themes. The romantic landscape is the most common subject within these works, where dark but comforting worlds are evoked.
The Inland Sea presents a new series of works from Walker and Rodda.
