Esmond Bingham: New Constructions
Since Esmond Bingham’s last solo show at North House Gallery in 2014 he has continued to develop and refine his distinctive constructions, as his contributions to three mixed shows have attested in the meantime. Now we are delighted to present a considerable body of new work whose humorous and imaginative élan is matched with an immaculate manufacture. The constructions can hang on a wall or sit on a table surface or floor, depending on the size, which varies markedly. They are made of unexpectedly ordinary materials like plywood or mdf and are painted in subtle colours, or not at all. The objects are both material and visual but the ideas derive less from their appearance than from how they present to the viewer.
'Recently I have been attempting to make objects which, although they may inhabit the real world, are somehow not quite of it. This may be because viewpoints conflict or spatially they do not appear to obey the usual rules. The viewer’s eye will insist on believing the lie'
