“The function of the artist is to express a reality felt” Robert Motherwell.
Sitar’s paintings act directly on our sensory experiences. Her abstract imagery is at times shown as ‘a blurred expression’, suggesting s rare glimpse of a moment caught in passing.
BackSlash, Castlefield Gallery’s first experimental electronic art project, sets out to explore and showcase the spectrum of today’s electronic art practice in the North West of England. Combining the production and presentation of creative uses of technology, BackSlash examines the changing nature of our visual culture as a result of the computer.
This exhibition brings together painting and sculpture by ten young artists working in the North West, chosen from more than 250 practitioners represented in Slidex. Though different in many aspects of their craft and practice, the selected artists share a witty, ironic or subversive approach to their chosen imagery.
