Broken Romanticism

Curated by Steve Walter

This exhibition shows work by ten artists that to varying extents deal with ideas of contemporary Romanticism through presenting visions of the future and reflecting upon a nostalgic and natural past. The difficulty with representing classically beautiful landscapes, memory and the yearning for ‘Homelands’ at present clash with the disenfranchisement of a lost wilderness into domesticated, sub-urban, plastic and supermarket-ridden environments. The limitations of a physical Romanticism must find new routes in the face of a landscape ever increasingly shaped by convenience.
