Andrew Grassie – Still Frame

Esther Schipper is pleased to present Andrew Grassie’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Entitled Still Frame the exhibition includes 24 new paintings. Both title and number of paintings obliquely acknowledge the conceptual affinity to cinematic story-telling that informs the new body of work – 24 frames per second is the standard ratio in film to create the illusion of seamless movement in human vision. Known for small, precisely painted works – their ostensibly unassuming matter-of-factness sometimes masking the often elaborately staged preparation of past projects and their conceptual ambition – with Still Frame Andrew Grassie continues longstanding interests into the status of the image, the nature of memory and contemporary painting.
