By Chance: Chris Gough, John Hacker, Matthew Harris

 

11 June to 5th July, Viking Gallery, Margate

Chris Gough, John Hacker and Matthew Harris have recently met having been sought as a group by curator Philip O’Reilly. ‘By Chance’ is their first show together. Although all are using chance as an element of their working processes, their distinctly individual mark making language sets them apart from each other. The technical demands of their working processes in print, paint and cloth are equally varied and add to the frisson that makes surveying this exhibition an exciting experience.
