Gallery 1 - Gareth Jenkins paintings were developed from urban culture, man made structures, the walls and spaces that went into the make up of our architectonic environment and the aerial view of the roads around it. The structural aspects of the lines are hard and formal but the medium of the paint allows it to be moved around the surface giving it a more fluid appearance. The structure is mounted on a wide support of birch plywood giving it a sculptural form. The minimal and abstract sculptures of Rory Tangney are concerned with their constituent materials, and are increasingly influenced by the constructed environment,- architecture, the public space and the myriad objects which clutter it. The partnership with the paintings of Gareth resonates because of the materials where hard wooden lines are softened by hand moulded plaster and brightly coloured thread randomly placed like a sudden brushstroke.
