playpaint – amplifier (part two)

playpaint are two artists based in London, working together since 2008. They will present their second exhibition of paintings in an abandoned restaurant at 9 Milroy Walk, SE1.


playpaint produce paintings that are deliberately resolved and employ a decisive engineered aesthetic. Their working method is to invent and design a process of fabrication which can generate the visual elements necessary for each work. This is achieved directly, or through the application of found objects or constructed tools.


These visual elements are simple and non-representational and when combined or repeated, generate complexity and noise. In production the paintings resist engagement with ideas of meaning, language or context; but presented as spectacle they aspire to manufacture an experience of absurd and compelling distraction – a proposition of primitive entertainment delivered as an end in itself.
