Robin Megannity on Call of the Void

Robin Megannity discusses the ideas behind the works in his solo exhibition Call of the Void at Workplace | London.

Call of the Void explores Megannity’s endeavour to hold paradoxical or contrary sentiments within his painting that connect the ubiquitous with the sublime. Historical techniques and traditions of painting are appropriated and quoted in his work, and the pathos, melancholy and solemnity of Northern European still life paintings are interrupted by references to digital image making. Glitches and ruptures in the framing of his images connect the temporality of the historical source imagery with commonplace contemporary means of media manipulation.
