Two of Wellington's widely collected artist's, Timon Maxey and David Brown, appear for a joint show of new works.

"Landshapes" is a collection of shapes extracted, isolated and developed from Timon’s fractionalist landform paintings and these represent an exploration of a new direction for his art.

"Solace and Pleasure" comes from the philosophical writings of Jean-François Lyotard, where it is deduced that nothing can be gained from representing animals as a matter for human “solace and pleasure.”

"Landshapes" These shapes are from landforms but are no longer distinguishable as landforms in themselves. For Timon, they are intriguing simple forms he has ‘discovered’ within his landform paintings and they are often ambiguous and suggestive. In the same way that he scans the physical environment for landscapes to paint, he scans his own paintings in the same voyage of discovery in reduced scale. The process of discovery in Timon’s works is integral to the inspiration required to produce them. The majority of these works are painted in acrylic on board and canvas on "floating" plywood cut-outs, while a some are on loose canvas.

"Solace and Pleasure" The title of this exhibition comes from the philosophical writings of Jean-François Lyotard. The works presented in this exhibition explore this concept, taking a non figurative approach and working within a system based geometric framework on aluminium panels.
