An exhibition of the contemporary figurative painters Bartholomew Beal andEleanor Watson. Each is concerned with narrative in a very different way; Bartholomew makes paintings of characters in ethereal landscapes whilst Eleanor creates interior spaces where the absence is almost tangible. Despite this obvious difference they share a literary quality.
At the centre of this exhibition will be two pieces forming a response to Samuel Beckett’s Endgame. This is a typical play by the master of the absurd; four characters exist in a post-apocalyptic world confined in the square of a grey room. Biscuit. I’ve kept you half. is a line taken from a dialogue between the couple who live in bins.
