Painting at the End of the World is delighted to be working again with Systems House aka Martin Fletcher.
Fletchers’ work involves a high level of production, using a range of materials and process including metal, fluorescent paints, welding and found objects.
There are elements of the absurd and the very serious in the work that I find compelling. Formal references range from bespoke industrial design, Bauhaus and the cold war. Content ranges from responses to the genre of Science Fiction, but also back to themes referenced in the formal concerns.
Painting at the End of the World will introduce the sculptural work of Systems House as a counter point to the ongoing dialogue on the specificity, or dissolution thereof of the medium of paint in contemporary painting.
