David Wightman: Behemoth and Other New Paintings
Part of Cornerhouse Projects
From Saturday 31 October to Wednesday 16 December
David Wightman appropriates images from both geometric abstraction and classical landscape painting – motifs associated with aspiration, idealism, and modernity. Using collaged wallpaper, which signifes the domestic, he personalises these images and renders them nostalgic – capturing their beauty, banality, and the desires they represent. The colours and patterns he uses in his work link aspirational working class homes and high art.
