Newlyn Art Gallery
and The Exchange
Showing across our two venues plus a a site-specific commission for Truro Cathedral
1st July – 15th October 2016
This summer we present a major project by the highly acclaimed artist Imran Qureshi across our two venues plus a site-specific commission for Truro Cathedral, making this arguably Qureshi’s most ambitious UK exhibition to date.The exhibitions at Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange offer visitors deeper insight into Qureshi’s work. The exhibition at Newlyn is quiet and reflective, presenting new and existing works, many on paper, reflecting Qureshi’s mastery of the processes and devices of Muhgal Miniature painting, but also the confidence with which he subverts them.
For the single large gallery space at The Exchange, Qureshi has devised an installation where, characteristically, painted imagery spills from large canvases, across wall and floors. Appropriately this work reflects on the galleries relationship with the sea and plays with traditional devices in miniature painting to represent water in different states, reflective pools; rippling sea; falling as rain.
