No 20 Arts is delighted to present LOREM IPSUM, a solo exhibition of new works by Jim Threapleton. LOREM IPSUM is Jim Threapleton's third major exhibition with the gallery. This expansive new body of work continues to follow the artist's pursuit of abstraction at the threshold of representation. It marks the development of a uniquely contemporary approach to traditional techniques. Threapleton's paintings are defiantly fluid. The plastic immediacy of oil paint drives a lyrical indeterminacy found between control and accident, depth and flatness, between the real and the indefinable. Gestural improvisation animates an unstable pictorial territory where the spectacle of the image is superseded by contemplative, expressive materiality that channels the spirit of the painting's Romantic legacy.
