This exhibition included paintings and drawings by Giles Eldridge alongside West African, Inuit and New Guinea sculptures from Gimpel Fils' stock, selected by the artist. The exhibition comprised of four works and the titles were provided by Maria Fusco, presented next to each work on the gallery floor.

Image 20 shows a painting with a reproduction of Hugo van der Goes, Adoration of the Shepherds.

"Giles Eldridge is engaged with the idea of what constitutes Painting and Drawing. This concern is underpinned by a formal investigation into how the interpretation of art is constructed through an apparently consensual system of definable categories, styles and “-isms”. Alongside this interest in the different stylistic forms that Painting and Drawing can take, is an additional curiosity in how that representational form influences and at times, dictates, our interpretation of the visual referent.Selecting images from photographic sources, Eldridge's works of art are created using a variety of techniques and materials within the parameters of the practices of Painting and Drawing. Some works may be detailed graphite drawings whilst others are loose gouache or watercolour paintings. By working with these distinct materials in a variety of styles - photo-realist, abstract, impressionistic - he intentionally deploys a methodology of inconsistency in order to articulate differences within the structures of paintings and drawings."
