Rooms with a View 

This exhibition focuses on a subject treasured by the Romantics: the view through an open window. German, French, Danish, and Russian artists first took up the theme in the second decade of the nineteenth century.

Juxtaposing near and far, the window is a metaphor for unfulfilled longing. Painters distilled this feeling in pictures of hushed, spare rooms with contemplative figures; studios with artists at work; and open windows as the sole motif. As the exhibition reveals, these pictures may shift markedly in tone, yet they share a distinct absence of the anecdote and narrative that characterized earlier genre painting.”

I have a book of images being published by Museums Press in May. 
Museums Press are the same people behind Good Press Gallery and I’m thrilled to be working with them on this new book. 
Phasing collects 25 new images plus reprints of my now out-of-print zine “Don’t Break the Oath” and the “Untitled Mini Comic” I created for SPX 2013 which was also collected in New Comics #2. 
Look for it later this spring. 

We’re really, really pleased to be working with Patrick Kyle on a book!
