'Travelling Our Way'
Open Friday to Sunday, 12noon - 6pm, or by appointment.
Studio 1.1 is very pleased to present a new series of large paintings by John Tiney. Since completing his MA at Goldsmiths in 2005, where his forensic mind explored film-making, he has made a triumphant return to painting in this his first solo show.
In these skewed post-pop mythologies found and re-worked images contradict themselves while their meticulous execution suggests we may be missing something. A forgotten legend, an archetype new to us. A synthesis of images bubbling from the peripheral universes of advertising and archive.
Far from any fashionable dystopia, however, a new hope is to be found clinging to the wreckage in these fragments from a mutated childhood. Post-apocalyptic they may be, but after the Twilight of the Gods is the Dawn of Man, and '2001' offers some back-dated hope of survival.
