'New Romantics": St. John's The Rooms

by Katie Leamen

Canadian Art, Summer 2012, p. 118

The Room was a group exhibition curated by Bruce Johnson featuring the work of Philippa Jones, Anthony Redpath and Kelly Richardson. The article is a review of the exhibition by talking about each work of the artists. "Mounted in The Room's superb third-floor gallery spaces, Richardson's The Erudition(2010), and Jones's Drawn(2012) and Umbra, played with subtle resolution differences, while Redpath's chromogenic colour prints (2009-11) are so intensely detailed that a pleasant fluctuation in visual- information level is created as you circulate through the works."
