Peter O'Doherty

Somehow Connected

14 June – 9 July 2022

“Most portraits are exercises in flattery, and O’Doherty’s portraits of houses and public buildings present these humble structures in a complimentary light. Each is restored to a youthful vibrancy, transporting us back to a time when bricks denoted permanence, and aluminium framed sliding windows were the height of modern style. It’s easy to disapprove of past fads and enthusiasms, but every piece of ironwork, every faded coat of paint represents a carefully calibrated assertion of personal taste.”
