…Perspectives features five highly distinctive artists – two photographers Emily Allchurch and David Maisel, two painters Patrick Hughes and Gerry Judah, and the young, Prague-based Iranian, Yassi Golshani. Each of these accomplished, exacting artists painstakingly constructs a world and then delights in breaking the illusion – either literally, as in the paintings of Gerry Judah where tiny precise cities are built up and then broken down on the canvas, or more figuratively, as in Emily Allchurch’s Urban Chiaroscuro, where surveillance cameras and mirrors, modern signs and graffiti and other contemporary details are positioned within what is apparently an eighteenth century etching. Recommended.
