Ana Cristea Gallery is pleased to present “Point of Entry”, a group show that brings together the work of three remarkable artists: Oliver Clegg, Daniel Pitin and Nicola Samorì. The artists are all figurative painters concerned with the relationship between the surface they paint on and the subjects they depict. Each painter approaches this way of working from his own unique perspective, but each is concerned with how the viewer becomes implicated in the journey of the expression and resolution of the artist’s ideas and feelings. Art, particularly painting has the ability to render that which is invisible, visible. Atmospheres and memories can be translated into a form that can not only be seen but also felt. With this in mind, the question of how the viewer can ‘enter’ a painting becomes even more pertinent.
