Art Exhibition Private View
Tue 26 Nov 2013, 18.30
Artist Jack Foster invites you to the private view of his exhibition 'Methinks it is Like a Weasel' at Conway Hall.
"Deterministic philosophy, moral philosophy, Darwinism, materialism and anthropology inform my practise, as does religion's conflict with the above.
Largely, my work is intended to be exploitative of type 1 and 2 pattern seeking errors;
- the false recognition of a pattern where there is none
- failure to recognise a true pattern
While grouped, the paintings allow for the emergence of intentional and unintentional, real and false patterns and relationships between and within paintings."
Admission is free and wine will be served.
Located in the Brockway Room.
The Exhibition will continue into the New Year. For viewing times, please call 0207 061 6741.
