Plane Space @ Worcester Cathedral



Above work by Dan Roach

Plane Space was a group exhibition curated by Dan Roach and held in the crypt of the Worcester Cathedral in Worcester, U.K.
For the event, Roach brought together six abstract / non-objective painters whose works offer a dramatic contrast to their ancient surroundings even as formal elements (grids, texture, color and composition) are often reflected in the environment of the crypt. The crypt was an inspired choice for the exhibit as it brazenly highlights or slyly secrets away these contemporary interlopers.

From the curator's statement:

The premise of the exhibition was to examine how a cross section of current painters express the notion of space in their work. 
Each of the painters featured exploit pictorial space in quite different means, yet each their own. 
However, that is only half of the story. For me the true function of the installation was to question what happens when these abstract paintings collide with a physical space that can, or must be negotiated to uncover the relationship that one work has to the next.

This is georgeous! And so refreshing to see paintings in a setting so much more intriguing than a white walled gallery (I just had a showing in a barn).

How fresh is this show. Wish I was in UK to see it in person.

This is a great show - wish I had known it was on. The setting creates dialogues between paintings and the building - so many rich connections. Thank you.
