This exhibition presents a range of works selected from members of paintclubeast (PCE), a collective of artists that work together to explore and challenge their thinking around painting through critical investigation.
Jeffrey Dennis has been invited to select works from PCE members to form an exhibition. Jeffrey Dennis was born in Colchester and creates paintings that reference the patterns and structures of everyday life – the networks and maps that we create through physical movement and encounters and the mental maps that remain unseen but influence our actions. He has exhibited in the British Art Show, EASTinternational, and has been selected three times to exhibit in the John Moore’s Painting Prize.
PCE is a collective of artists that supports the professional development of painters in the UK’s Eastern region. It enables critical debate about contemporary painting through a programme of talks by leading painters of national and international reputation.
