Showing at the Kerlin Gallery for one month, this exhibition by painter Paul Winstanley under the title of Homeland, presents a ensemble of new paintings that represent a fictional account of the contemporary space. Winstanleys devotion to still life, the interior and the landscaped is accompanied by the importance of photographic image in contemporary life. His depictions of landscapes and urban scenes often have the feel of a blurred black and white photos as a consequence. In this current show, Walkway 1 and Walkway 2 represent a idealistic, urban nocturnal views that are brutal in their perspectives. The paintings, Birch 1 and Birch 2 capture the symbolism of the country while Little Finland 1 and Little Finland 2 provide an almost cinematic narrative through their use of buildings and cars situated at the boundary between the urban and rural worlds.
