Senior Lecturer Charles Williams has a joint exhibition opening in Deal.
Linden Hall Studio presents the work of Arthur Neal, William Plumptre and Charles Williams, three artists whose careers have spanned the late twentieth century and early twenty-first and whose work contains many of the concerns, obsessions and interests of this particular time in British culture. Reflections on Modernism and Post-modernism, on the breaking down of ideas about authenticity and a search for some kind of truth or beauty in the mass of contradictions that characterizes our time are contained in these works. In the end it is only in the constant practice of making and remaking that brings what resolution is possible.
