Painting Now: Out of Elam features new work bysix recent MFA graduates of Elam School of Fine Arts. The participating artists are Diane Scott, Glen Snow, Ian Peter Weston, Jamie Chapman, Toby Raine, André Sampson.
What does Painting Now: Out of Elam claim of those it represents? Contemporaneity is certainly part of its claim. The six painters represented here remain unproven as emerging artists within a contemporary discourse, although they hope to shape that discourse with their work. The exhibition maintains that painting still has currency within a culturally and technologically advanced economy. The claim for those showing in Painting Now: Out of Elam is to join their voices with many who make painting necessary to their ideas, who find that painting remains vital, even after all its history, and full of possibilities within our present.
