Paradise Row Gallery Anna Bjerger - Da Capo
Anna Bjerger - Da Capo

26th Oct - 1st Dec 2012

The exhibition's title, Da capo, is a musical term, a composer's directive to repeat the previous passage of music on a score. Accordingly this new body of paintings is structured around a number of works that repeat the same motif, a man with a hat, with his back to us. In different hands, repetition may serve different ends. Here the repetition acts to foreground the physical act of painting, the mark making and the materiality of paint, whilst the purported subject recedes.
