Geoff Uglow: Quercus Robur

1 May - 1 June 2013

In an exhibition of new works, Geoff Uglow seeks to question temporality in painting, exploring the tension between the timeless and the instant. Each of the works takes as their focus a shared object, the Oak tree.  For Uglow the Oak tree is emblematic of both the antique and the present, standing as a living witness to the landscape's history and its daily changes.  By returning to his subject time and time again, the artist is able to explore this history and its link with the transitory nature of painting itself.
