Silent Expression celebrates Carl Melegari’s exploration of the figure at the height of his skill and accomplishment. His work is recognisable by its muted pallette and the sculptural application of paint, scraped back then reapplied in luscious swathes. Melegari’s masterful painterly style succeeds in creating work that loudly teems with movement, whilst presenting figures engaging in quiet contemplative moments. The deeply psychological atmosphere of his work, brooding and fearless, mesmerises the viewer. Melegari has described his ouvre as the portrayal of a subject ‘who looks to be searching for his or her soul’.

Until 6 December
Atkinson Gallery, Millfield, STREET BA16 OYD

01458 444322 Visit Website
Mark Elliott Smith’s large abstract paintings have visual resonances with the contemporary urban scene, and reveal thoughts and ideas as playful but symbolic patterns of forms and shapes which hint at some kind of narrative beyond the conscious grasp. When his original, often very small drawings - some of which date from his childhood - are dramatically enlarged, previously hidden information, both visual and psychological, is revealed and amplified. Chance actions are interpreted in a meticulous, deliberate way, in a combination of spontaneity and control: chaos and order are held in balance on an epic scale. The titles of his paintings parallel rather than describe the work and function as micro-poems analogous to the images as they emerge and are defined.
