H Gallery is very pleased to announce a 2-part exhibition that excitestensions and antagonisms for considerations of what contemporary painting practice is and does.Conflicts of Interest essentially takes a skewed look at conservative understandings of painterly methods and forms in order to provoke radical relationships and fresh perceptions. At the H Gallery. Open daily except Tuesday from 10:00-18:00. H Gallery, 201 Sathorn Soi 12. Tel: 081 310 4428.
Moving outward from purportedly traditional notions of painterly craftto vacillations between the intimate and the vulgar, the observed and the cerebral, art historical preoccupations and thoroughly contemporary experiments, Conflicts of Interest seeks to highlight divisions rather than resolve them. This disunifying theme inquires into how, for example, the rhetoric of authentic expression can be reinvigorated by juxtaposition with the slapdash and ironic, without the latter losing potency. Further, painting's vexed relationships to visual and material culture at large are acknowledged; between text and image; the streamlined and the visceral; the appropriated and the invented; the assimilated and disruptive; and form and formlessness.
