“…paintings are not propositions, they are not even like propositions. that is they do not aim to make statements or even, precisely, to seek assent. they are best not seen…”(1.)

Heads hills letters lumps lists and speculation populate new painting and drawing from Martin Poppelwell. Following on from his recent show of pottery / sculpture these works continue to build loosely woven grids from colour, objects and letters. What one gets is a combination of abstraction and frank depictions.

“I look endlessly for gaps and breaks in the making of paintings, where I can imply fragments of light and thought, where space kind of lurches as materials exchange areas of intensity, and of course a small chunk of mock ‘beauty’..moments that can expand into watching time pass.”

- Heaven on earth and the life to come, TJ Clarke, Thames+Hudson, 2018. (fyi “I have edited this quote abruptly, its service has been altered.)
