"The position on painting has shifted in the last years, and on the face of it, Graham Durward should seem to be one of its prime proponents. Durward deserves a place in the pantheon for many reasons, and it is high time his quiet observation of life’s rhythms earn its public due. What Durward has achieved is perhaps best summed up in the artist’s own words: 'it’s about moving the quotation marks ever wider.' This exhibition will achieve this fact, with a solemn homage to the pulse of the earth, and the mature level the Scottish-born artist has now achieved." — Excerpt from "Moving the Quotation Marks Ever Wider" Graham Durward By Cornelia Lauf

Artist ( Description ): 

Graham Durward lives and works in New York. He has been featured in exhibitions at Step Sisters Gallery, Shrine Gallery, White Columns, Marianne Boesky Gallery, and more. Durward’s paintings explore the power of images. Durward develops his paintings from photographs that he finds or takes himself. In his paintings he tries to capture a sense of sublimation; his works suggest both sensuality and distance. His muted tones and ephemeral brushwork describe the intangible with a fixation or longing. “I wanted to talk about a kind of contemporary aura that you could relate to a sacred experience,” Durward explains. “My images have an immediate or contemporary feel, an Ethernet aura, that becomes an ‘otherness’. Each image alludes to the unseen, a part of the world with its own ambience. I think about my work in analytically poetic terms. All the themes relate to some kind of solitude wrapped up somewhere inside desire.”
