'A Pastiche of Different Techniques' at Moon Grove
24 November 2022 - 25 January 2023
Moon Grove, Manchester
PV Wednesday 23 November, 6-9PM
For his exhibition at Moon Grove, David Osbaldeston has created a suite of site-specific works for the gallery’s intimate domestic location. Spread between the building’s ground floor rooms, entrance, staircase and first floor landing, Osbaldeston’s prints and paintings take on two separate identities, each with its own angle on contemporary criticism associated with Nietzsche’s ‘Eternal Return’, alongside bourgeois elements of taste associated with Modernism and philosophical aesthetics development since the Enlightenment.
A Pastiche of Different Techniques will conclude on Burns Night 2023, with the launch of a new limited-edition print. David Osbaldeston was born in 1969 in Northampton and lives and works between Scotland and Manchester. His works are held in various public institutions including the Whitworth Art Gallery and Tate Collection. He is currently Reader in Fine Art at Manchester School of Art, and was formerly lecturer in Painting and Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art. He is represented by Matt’s Gallery, London.
