Divergence is an exhibition of eight abstract painters whose work contains no theme or direct subject matter, nor exist as ‘abstractions’ of something real. Rather, they are explorations of their very nature as an abstract painting: an enquiry uniting all artists in the show. At the point of drawing conclusions their practises diverge, culminating in a widely varied selection of work, ranging from the coolly minimal to the energetically gestural. An enduring sense of the real and the human perpetuates throughout these eight diverse practises, creating an engaging visual experience for the viewer.
