Huxley-Parlour are pleased to announce an exhibition of works from seven contemporary artists who use varying degrees of figuration in their work as a way to explore the potential of painterly abstraction, and how this abstraction can extend and deepen narrative. Each artist uses their own particular form of mark making – from the gestural and intuitive to the precise – to explore story telling, lived experience and traces of memory.

The exhibition will span two floors of Huxley-Parlour’s newly renovated space. Through a tightly curated selection of twenty works made in the past 12 years, the exhibition will explore the complexities inherent to image making and representation.
