In no particular order: painting as metaphor for presentness, is an exhibition of paintings by Simón Granell with the writings of Kathleen Abiker and curated by Josepha Sanna. The collaboration is an exploration into the process of painting as metaphor for presentness and into what it means to be stuck, unable to act: a reason to create or a reason to stop. The work does not merely reflect the process of painting but is about the method of painting; it is evidence of an act, but of process interpreted by gesture.
Kath Abiker studied Fine Art at the Slade School in London and subsequently completed a research led MA in the History and Theory of Modern Art at Chelsea School of Art. She is Course Leader for Art History at Ashford School of Art and Design and teaches on the MA in Contemporary Arts programme at the University of Kent, lecturing primarily on the significance of philosophy and postmodern theory in relation to contemporary art.
Born in England in 1964, Simón Granell studied fine art at Falmouth School of Art and The Slade School of Art, London. He was nominated for the Picker Fellowship at Kingston University in 1991, and in 1992 was nominated for the Barclays Young Artist of the Year Award and shortlisted for the British School at Rome. He has exhibited widely in the UK and Spain, and has worked with artist Tania Kovats on the Drawing Quarters symposium at Bristol School of Art.
Josepha Sanna is the editor of Word Matters - a book of seminar transcripts about the interaction of language and art, which were hosted in Venice on the occasion of the 52nd Venice Biennale.
