Michael Brick Retrospective

"Although paintings, the language used is non-painterly. There is no engagement with ideas of creativity or self-expression. The issues relate to uniqueness and plurality; presence and absence, completeness and partiality. In the making and structuring of the work each piece uses a simple self-generating geometry. They make themselves and in so doing become more than just formal exercises.What poetry or beauty that is present In these images resides not in the works themselves, but in the mind of you, the viewer."
