Pontone Gallery and Albemarle Gallery are proud to present a selection of new paintings by Iain Faulkner, Henry Jabbour, and Tim Wright.
Acclaimed Scottish painter, Iain Faulkner, continues his enquiry into the expressive potential of the solitary male figure. Whether located in a luxurious international hotel room or the rugged landscape of his native Scotland, his technically-accomplished compositions evoke a sense of contained isolation and brooding introspection.
Born in Beirut and educated at the New York Academy of Art, Henry Jabbour paints the human figure. His paintings display a vivid use of colour and exuberant execution. His loosely-indicated, schematic images are integrated into a highly worked and abstracted paint surface, scattered with incidental markings and subtle gestures.
The paintings of English artist Tim Wright exhibit a contrasting mix of closely-observed motif and gesturally-turbulent passages of rich and subtle colour. Describing both the specific and the general, the artist sets up a personal iconography of significant images, which jump from emphatic focus to veiled suggestion.
