Dragomir Mišina at the Pound

Dragomir Mišina's solo show 'At First Glance' at The Pound Corsham  Fri, 9 Jan 2015 - Sun, 22 Feb 2015

The work has been carefully selected and curated by me and Fiona Cassidy, taken from five different series dating from 2011 to present. During this process we have considered the unusual gallery layout, positioning paintings according to view point, and the relationship which they form when viewed from the distance. Moving closer to a painting, focus shifts to the complex surface of expressive mark making, carefully edited with use of layers, repeated several times. That is where the idea for the title comes from. First impression, from the distance, when viewing the work is different from the impression when observing a painting close up. Each visit to the same painting will reveal something new to the previous time.

This exhibition invites the viewer to look around at the diverse painting techniques, discovering contradictions and connections.
