In 1972 Gerhard Richter declared that he was making ‘photography’ by other means, confounding the relationship between painting and photography. While much work has focused on the interplay of painting and photography, Peter Alwast’s exhibition continues his interests in the possibilities of painting by interrogating its relationship to digital media and drawing. At the heart of Alwast’s recent works are ideas related to translation and the interface between virtual tendencies in the material practice of painting and painterly conventions in media practices.

Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Wednesday 6 May 2015
