New Wave: Experimental Painting - Billy Gruner & Sarah Keighery

Gruner and Keighery have been radical advocates of purist styles of work since 1995, and what that implies is a kind of successional approach to contemporary art and its preferences. They draw on their influence from the experimental painting movement of the 80s, which brought a savage return to reductive practices.

They collaboratively create works which extend on the themes explored in concrete art, colour field, geometric and other forms of early radical abstract art. Their practice questions the need for art to be precious in order to be valuable whilst taking a new approach to concerns of the time when Avant Garde rebelled against the restrictions of traditional art practices.
