Speaking of nothing of love nor reproaches / Remembering nothing,
harbouring no ghosts / saving us nothing at all but raspberries.
-From Wild Raspberries by John Fuller

from Malina, a place where raspberries were cultivated. It¹s perhaps
appropriate that this exhibition takes place in the fruit growing season,
as the paintings on display share some of the brevity and delicacy of
The Malinowski¹s are a family of Polish artists living in Birmingham. This
is the first time they have exhibited their work together. Of course
there¹s a long history of painter¹s families, most notably the Brueghel
family, through to the Picasso's, Pissarro's, Klein's, Francken's,
Duchamp's and Boyle's. But it is the strange landscapes of the Montmartre
painter Maurice Utrillo, the artist son of Suzanne Valadon, that this show
most resembles, hallucinatory and compelling.
This is an exhibition of abstract and figurative paintings concerned with
memory and the passing of time that looks at the relationship between
photography and painting, familial influences, East European art,
spirituality, portraiture and the question of painting itself.
