Mountain Size features artists from the Contemporary British Painting membership, selected by CBP board member, Gordon Dalton. The exhibition features UK artists whose work has a relationship to landscape, from coast to country, or as a more abstract inspiration. The landscape is a starting point, a subject matter, before the spontaneity, contradiction and decision making begins and the delicate matter of pushing ‘coloured mud around with a hairy stick.’

 

All the painters involved relate directly to the history, legacy and traditions of painting itself. This does not mean they are divorced from the wider realities around us or a fruitful critical dialogue with other art forms, but that painting itself is important.  Large paintings, small paintings, paintings of ‘things’, for these artists, painting itself is mountain sized, a large, seemingly immovable force yet one that is changeable with time, history and the world around us.

Contemporary British Painting is an artist led organisation which explores and promotes current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications and the donation of paintings to art museums.
