‘Italian Song’ 2017, Acrylic on canvas, 100cm x 90cm by Martin Goold
A Journey Retraced – Martin Goold Solo Exhibition
17th October – 3rd November
This exhibition presents works made over the last 13 years together with a small number of older pieces from the 1980’s and 90’s.
In 2005 Martin returned to painting after a break of several years. Taking a studio in Charmouth and using drawing to re-orientate himself, his work moved closer to figuration.
This fascinating presentation explores the place figuration has in the work of a painter who has essentially abstract concerns.
Moreover, placing recent works alongside older works provides an insight into his creative journey; he has a long held interest in working with the seemingly contradictory tendencies of structured design and freely expressive activity.
For the limited period of this exhibition the portfolio presented for his successful 2018 application for membership of the Pastel Society will also be on view.
