Finas Townsend III: ...grabbing the gin and regretfully leaving the sauce.

Sat 8 July — Fri 28 July 2017

Finas Townsend III

...grabbing the gin and regretfully leaving the sauce. is conceived as a presentation of artefacts either created or consumed by a twenty-first century painter. The aim of this exhibition is to explore how painting transcribes current behaviour and habits... and to ask how does an artist who continues to use a 'traditional medium' earn his contemporaneity in the first place.

The exhibition is designed to be an exploitive arrangement; leaving explicit evidence of a painter’s speculative understanding of contemporaneity. The presentation is completely autobiographical; proposing paintings, photographs and personal items (of value or otherwise detritus) as neatly aligned conjectures of their contemporary status.

All works were made or conceived in Glasgow between 2014 and 2017.

Accessibility note: there will be an acrylic disk on the ground (roughly 80cm diameter) that will be highly visible with a generous amount of navigational space around it. CCA's full accessibility guide can be found here.
