In 2010 My Lonely Days Are Gone brought together ten contemporary artists to explore the potential of a given physical space to generate wall works that commented on the role of abstraction.

Part 2 of My Lonely Days Are Gone continues to explore the connection among edge to edge images and the ready-made architectural set-up of the space. Each of the commissioned works in this exhibition focuses on a number of approaches to painting, drawing, collaging and printing. These non-permanent, site specific pieces juxtapose, at times, several techniques to probe the impact of specific interventions interacting with each other and within the space.

In rethinking the usual passive role of the wall as an area where to hang works, the artists have created artworks exclusively for each of the public walls as well as the floor of the gallery. My Lonely Days Are Gone / Part 2 proposes both an active dialogue among the pieces and a special awareness of architecture as a receptacle for temporary images.

From its inception abstraction has had many meanings. Its history, ramifications and impact on our visual culture are still essential to contemporary art and artists. In this exhibition an emphasis on nonfigurative works considers the efficacy and potential of the practice of abstraction, and its complex relation between its autonomy and interdependency with references in the world. The differences between abstraction and figurative art are today less defined, more fragmented, openly cross- contaminated. It is precisely this pliable language that informs the exhibition allowing representational, theoretical and abstract pictorial strategies to be juxtaposed in interconnected ways. In this age of fundamental changes, abstraction continues to represent alternative sources and realities that address the visual investigation and conceptual research of contemporary artists. An underlying temporality is part of My Lonely Days Are Gone, as all works will be painted over after the exhibition ends.

Opening hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 12 - 6pm
