This exhibition is comprised of nine works from nine very different artists; Willie Doherty, Maureen Gallace, Liam Gillick, Siobhán Hapaska, Stephen McKenna, Isabel Nolan, Sean Scully, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Paul Winstanley. Although the range of artist’s concerns, practice and approach is diverse the individual works have been particularly selected for what they share.

Common to each work is a sophisticated use of geometry, an architechtonic harmony and a clarity of articulation.  Less is more is the underlying whisper of this show as each artist employs a economy of means.  The result is an exhibition of paintings, sculpture and photography that have a refined austerity and a quiet presence inviting a more cotemplative and meditative interpretation.
