Jesmonite on Paper brings together seven artists with a shared interest in constructing images and objects through the build-up of materials and surfaces. The exhibition explores a re-emergence of non-objectivity amongst a new generation of artists. The works develop from and engage in their own materiality as stuff is manipulated in to things. The things are constructed through kinaesthetic processes, trial and error and experimentation, and the human qualities (mistakes, slippages, imperfections and unexpected results) become integral both to the form of the work and the viewer's reading of it.
