The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Twenty-Two Painters | Curated by Alex Gene Morrison & Kiera Bennett

Phillip Allen, Peter Ashton-Jones, Paul Becker, Kiera Bennett, Katrina Blannin, Dan Coombs, Leigh Curtis, Teresita Dennis, Andrew Grassie, Alexis Harding, Nadia Hebson, Adam Holmes-Davies, Sigrid Holmwood, Paul Housley, Dan Howard-Birt, Aly Helyer, Phil King, Alex Gene Morrison, Tom Platt, Ben Spiers, Neal Tait, Jonathan Wateridge

CHARLIE SMITH LONDON is delighted to host the convergence of an interconnected group of UK based artists who all engage deeply with the material construction, history and ongoing vitality of painting as a relevant contemporary medium.

The approaches within this shared preoccupation are varied: the viscous, hard edged, fat, thin, fast, slow, lyrical, discordant, romantic, expansive, analytical, calm and urgent will all work alongside one another to form a multi-headed alliance.
