Please join Handel Street Projects for drinks to celebrate the opening of Mark Fairnington's exhibition at Handel Street Projects, 14 Florence Street, Islington, N1 2DX in the presence of the artist and curator Fedja Klikovac. 

The Landscape Room will feature a new series of paintings by Mark Fairnington that are poised between the observed and the remembered, functioning in the gap between what we see and what we know. Fairnington’s new paintings began as a commission in 2018 for Cherryburn, the birthplace of the artist Thomas Bewick; work that reflected the site, the landscape and its history. The works connected with the historic context of Cherryburn to evoke a sense of local identity and cultural continuity. They examined how a subjective response to the landscape can be framed within a collective experience, shaped by our knowledge of the history of landscape painting. The Landscape Room will be designed to show the paintings as a single installation, echoing the way they were exhibited at Cherryburn. They were made to look as if they were meant to be there, as if they were always meant to be there.
