View Finder explores the pictorial, rather than the material, dimension of painting. Each artist in the show looks at the representation of nature, and considers landscape as a natural phenomenon, or as a social and cultural construct. The natural development in the history of picture-making from painting to photography and cinema, and to video and digital imaging, is reflected in the show. The selection of artists in View Finder is international; however, for many, this is their first UK exhibition. Co-curated by Stephen Hepworth and Arnolfini.
A catalogue on both Shimmering Substance and View Finder, with an essay by Alex Coles and dialogues between the curators, is available in the bookshop, price £7.50 (ISBN 0 907738 71 0).
