George Shaw

Payne's Grey

25 February 2011 - 12 June 2011

Payne's Grey: Coinciding with The Sly and Unseen Day, this intimate presentation in BALTIC’s Level 2 gallery showcases a strand of George Shaw’s practice that has never been seen before. Fourteen watercolours, named after the peculiar shade of their creation, provide a new take on Shaw’s familiar subject matter. “Once I started painting skies in Payne’s Grey and following Constable’s dictum that the sky was like the tuning fork for the tone of the painting, I began to simply allow the whole world to be sky coloured. And like the worst fears of Chicken Licken the sky did fall in - and the painted world became Payne’s Grey.”
