The paintings provoke a narrative in the imagination of the viewer and in doing so enables them to exist temporarily in someone else’s world – as if suddenly transported to a place where other lives exist and time has been suspended.

Christopher McVinish’s paintings are carefully composed with layers of detail and hold an air of expectancy and strangeness – these are places where something has just happened or is about to happen for the first time.

Exhibition runs 10-22 May 2014
