"Skateboarders: New Paintings by Terry Setch"
2004-03-13 until 2004-04-07
Campden Gallery
Chipping Campden, , UK United Kingdom

In these new paintings we encounter a theatre of display, energy and audacity that emanates equally from the painter and his subject. Setch’s delight at the skateboarders’ own risky improvised acrobatic choreography transfers into the nature of his drawing and mark-making. As a landscape painter, Setch has always treated the human environment, but these are his first specifically figure compositions for almost fifteen years.

His rejuvenated interest takes flight in acute angles of knees and shoulders, ballooning trousers and prized trainers, jutting elbows and gleeful faces. The raucous assemblies of youth behind stations or in dingy subways that older bypassers skirt Setch observes. The scene invades his imagination which, because he never sketches on the spot, generates the street-wise tonalities and urban grittiness of the paintings themselves. (Martin Holman February 2004)

Terry Setch who lives in Penarth and has a studio in Cardiff, south Wales, UK, is represented in many public collections in the UK including the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London: the National Museum and Galleries of Wales and museums throughout the UK. He has exhibited regularly in galleries in London and abroad for the last 40 years.
