Jim Overall: Some Recent Paintings
August 13, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - August 31, 2016 @ 3:00 pm
Jim’s Overall’s paintings reflect his interest in two-dimensional images that embody a response to vision.
Overall is interested in the influence of photography on painting, citing David Hockney’s publication Secret Knowledge, as “one of the single most influential things I have ever read.” Along with his avid interest in photography, Overall prefers a more manual approach to his practice and has increasingly turned toward hand preparation of oil colours.
His eclectic list of influences include the likes of Jan van Eyck, Raphael, Caravaggio, Rembrandt and Ingres, along with contemporaries Chuck Close, Gerhard Richter and George Shaw.
Opening Saturday 13 August, 2pm to 3.30pm.
