Psycho Painting at Carlson, London
‘Psycho Painting’ is a group show exploring the mental processes that determine painting and artwork. The exhibition tackles the conflict between the cerebral and emotional in the work of David Adamo, John Armleder, Kerstin Braetsch, Brendan Fowler, Xylor Jane, Jacob Kassay, Gerhard Richter, Kaari Upson and Lesley Vance. Each of the selected artists has been invited to prepare a piece that engages this tension; inevitably letting the emotional or rational part of their work become preponderant.
