Edition of 100

Paul Winstanley’s highly-formalised paintings of unoccupied interiors echo the human dramas that are played out in his chosen spaces. Waiting rooms, student lounges, TV rooms, and interview rooms feature in his work; rooms where Winstanley explores our sense of time and place. They are all rooms that exist in our collective memory as places for killing time.

About the Edition

Paul Winstanley’s highly-formalised paintings of unoccupied interiors echo the human dramas that are played out in his chosen spaces. Waiting rooms, student lounges, TV rooms, and interview rooms feature in his work; rooms where Winstanley explores our sense of time and place. They are all rooms that exist in our collective memory as places for killing time.

The idea of a toy exhibition which represents a real exhibition (Art Now, Tate Gallery, London, 1998) appealed to me on a number of different levels. My paintings have, for a long time, dealt with the nature of the image and the transformation of meaning that occurs when an image finds form in a new and sometimes unexpected media. Exhibition attempts to extend this idea. It includes a set of images which, taken together, constitute a potential installation. This was true of the original exhibition of paintings and it is true of this work. However, the recipient is now invited to play an active role in hanging, grouping and displaying the individual items. ‘Exhibition’ also acts as a memento of a group of works that have long since been dispersed.
