Uncertain Spaces: Kenopsia - Andy Cropper

A preview of paintings from the upcoming show .

kenopsia, n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that's usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet-a school hallway in the evening, an unlit office on a weekend, vacant fairgrounds-an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.

Uncertain Spaces:

Kenopsia

Andy Cropper

8 June – 6 July

Opening 7:30pm Friday 7 June

'kenopsia', (from the Greek, kenosis "emptiness" + opsia "seeing")

n. the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that’s usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet, an emotional afterimage that makes it seem not just empty but hyper-empty, with a total population in the negative, who are so conspicuously absent they glow like neon signs.

Uncertain Spaces: Kenopsia is Andy's fourth solo show created over the past few years exploring Sheffield's in-between spaces and non-places. The exhibition is composed of 'realist' paintings.

Choosing to be called a 'realist' painter instead of a 'photorealist,' Andy intentionally chooses to allow an element of painterly mark making rather than eliminating it with a blended photographic perfection.

“This project is ….trying to come out with investigations of spaces that we don’t want to look at, and trying to find something within that.” Andy Cropper 2015
