PAUL WRIGHT "PROFILES"
24 February 2021 - 13 March 2021
Paul Wright in widely known for this dynamic and emotive portraits since he was shortlisted for the BP Portrait award in 2006 and later in 2015 with his portrait of Simon Armitage CBE.
For this exhibition Paul has entirely focus on just twelve powerful heads no bigger than sixteen inches square of people who have influenced and shaped his lives.
'Profiles' is a survey of likeness, vaunting the mystique of anonymity in a time where humans increasingly wield their image for personal, capital and social gain.
Paring back the concept of portraiture, Wright poses questions about the modern practice of portrayal. What motivates the depiction and dissemination of likeness today? What control is taken back or conceded, by recording likeness through analogue means in lieu of Smartphones and digital cameras?

Shelter-in-Paint' is a milestone moment, marking James Fullarton's 20th solo exhibition with Thompson's Galleries since the painter's debut exhibition in 2000 at our Dover Street Gallery.
This exhibition's title points to the most pivotal year history has seen in a generation, an oil painter's manifestation of the 'work from home' mandate.
Always finding inspiration from life, Fullarton brings his bountiful palette and expressive strokes to every surface, articulating a kaleidoscope of colours in his tended flowers, the leaves, branches and sheds of the garden. Every composition seizes upon the opportunity to quite literally explore one's own backyard– a universe all its own, interactions legally enforced.

In a year where travel's joys have been stolen the world over, one must escape to the mind- and as Peter would suggest- the easel.
