Following on from his 2014 exhibition Fun and Games at Marsden Woo Gallery, Bryan Illsley has created a new series of seven paintings called Timepieces. These works on paper signify a deliberate departure from his previous 'disrupted' collages in their stripped back, robust forms of focused dots and lines. His decisive, consistent strokes register a change of pace and movement, in the words of the artist, 'they take time and mark time'. The show will also feature lively painted metal sculptures in the artist's trademark playful style.
Illsley will be joined by his 'company limited', three artists he has brought together from the gallery stable - Alison Britton, Robert Marsden and Nao Matsunaga - whose selected pieces will show alongside Illsley's new work.
