Brendan Neiland
Surface Tensions
14 December to 9 February

This exhibition is a survey of fifty years of the paintings of Brendan Neiland, one of the leading artists of his generation. It consists of more than sixty paintings including works loaned from both private and public collections. This exhibition gives an opportunity for visitors to experience the breadth of Neiland’s oeuvre and its development over the years. Whilst also showing Neiland’s growth as an artist shifting form the shimmering colour fields of his car bonnets to the black grounds of the late neon works. The exhibition allows us to see how closely interrelated the works are through his longstanding interest in the tensions between surfaces portrayed and his immaculately rendered painterly finish.
