TJ Bateson - 'Scape'
Wednesday 22 January - Sunday 2 February 2020
TJ Bateson’s new body of work is heavily driven by process. It is machine-like, but not arbitrary. It is scaffolded by mechanisms but still shows the traditional hand-painted line of the brush. It functions as a healing and meditative activity in its repetition. His subdued tonal range calls our attention to the whispered differences between shades and tones: he layers the marks and gestures heavily.
