New Paintings by THOMAS ANFIELD
March 4 – April 2, 2016
Friday, March 4th
Saturday, March 5th
In this new body of work Thomas Anfield continues his exploration of the relation between figuration and abstraction, image making and narrative. Employing the metaphor of the couple and by extension the family to speak of larger concerns of the human condition, and as signposts to both our common social roles and our own interior lives.
His former work as a Butoh dancer also informs these paintings choreographing his figures in a strange and intimate domestic dance. Anfield’s ”performers” are charged with a self awareness of their awkward and challenging place in contemporary painting and carve out space around themselves to create a theatrical geometry that oscillates between foreground and background, illusion and materiality, form and space.
