In Pursuit of Play

Florence Hutchings, Danny Romeril, Mick Hutchings, Fergus Polglase ‘In Pursuit of Play’ brings together four artists whose practises are linked by not only their outlook on making work but fundamentally their dialogue with materials. Rooted in similar inspirations from painting groups such as Cobra and St Ives, all four artists have a similar yet very distinctive intuitive approach.
