Antisocial Isolation

Antisocial Isolation is a group exhibition featuring the works by some of today’s up and coming artists which are an honest and transparent reflection of the way 2020 unfurled. Curated by the Delphian Gallery founders, Benjamin Murphy and Nick JS Thompson, the works deliberate the future and respond to the current Covid-19 pandemic. Each piece offers a unique perspective and fresh context to aid an understanding of our ‘new normal’.

Entry is free, however to ensure social distancing, pre-booking is required.

Iain Faulkner: A solitary man

Acclaimed painter, Iain Faulkner showcases his work at the Albermarle Gallery this autumn with an investigation into the expressive potential of the solitary male figure.

At first glance, the poses of the subjects merely depict the everyday, almost the mundane. The subject is caught at the point of rest, gazing out across the land, or city-scape, possibly looking at his shoes or maybe nursing a whiskey glass. Very rarely do we see his face and instead view the world over his shoulder, seeing what he sees. All the while, he remains elusive.

The subject is in fact the artist – this is an exhibition of self-portraits. Surprisingly though, these are not self-examining works – instead he positions himself as a witness at hand to record events.

This must-see exhibition chimes well with the uncertain times we find ourselves in. Find out more here.
