In several introductions to previous shows, I’ve spent much print musing on the over commercial appropriation of the term ‘impressionism’. Wading through the mire of social media, I regularly blanche at the abuse and over use of art historical terms as they are deployed, atlas like, to bolster the appearance of work that is at best mediocre. What Russian divorcee with a paintbrush isn’t inspired by Picasso, Monet, Van Gogh, et al? Henceforth no more mithering about the exhibition title and more about the talent. It is undeniably true that these seven painters are all professionals and their work needs no hyperbole to gild the lily.
For a collector, the purpose of a gallery has always been as a filter, we sift through the great mass of artists and their work, using our experience and knowledge to present our clients with an offering that we are proud to put our name and reputation to. Of course, there is an element of subjectivity in our choice and needless to say ‘other galleries are available’ but that is a matter of personal taste. However, quality, value for money, and presentation are not subjective. These seven artists have been carefully chosen for their talent and professionalism out of the many who approach us on a daily basis and who we believe to stand out in the blizzard of artistic noise engendered by the online world.
