PHOTOGRAPHY. PAINTING. PRINTMAKING.
A group exhibition opened the Liverpool Biennial 2010, featuring newly commissioned work from David Penny, Thomas Williams and Lisa Who.
David Penny is an artist and lecturer in photography at Manchester metropolitan University (UK). Work in Progress was made with the traditional still life painting in mind. The subjects of the photographs are simple things found around the domestic space: attention is bought to the overlooked, placing value on that which is often quiet or un-noticed.
Thomas Williams paints with colour suspended in translucent media, floated onto canvas and randomized by gravitational drag. His practice plays with gesture as a tradition in abstraction, supplementing the brush with rhythms initiated by physical forces.
Lisa Who responded to the exhibition space with an installation of wall drawings, bold images derived from architectural forms. The motifs used form part of a wider body of works on paper under the title, Floor Plan.
