Vital Excess features new works by Michael Evans and Anne Robinson, both engaged with questions of consciousness, affect and temporality and working between painting and the moving image.

Their works collide here on shifting boundaries of digital/analogue, figural/abstract and practice/theory. ..away from the monotonous tick of capital, our sensory perceptions of time, are vertiginous and uncanny..  now and then, inside and out.. we feel time differently

The exhibition opens with a Private View on the 3rd April from 6 to 8.30pm and there will also be an artists talk with the curator at 1pm on Friday the 4th

 Anne Robinson’s multi-disciplinary practice is concerned with the perception and politics of time, working experimentally with duration, frame, exposure, paint surface and performance. She has exhibited nationally and internationally and curating work includes One More Time and Supernormal.

 Michael Evans’ work explores perceptions of time, space and the shifting sense of self, encountered when contemporary abstract painting enters into dialogue with digital imaging. He has shown in theUKand internationally and publications include: Out of Nothing: Painting and Spirituality.

Evans and Robinson both completed practice-led PhDs at The Cass

The show is curated by painter, Judith Tucker.
