Sticker Book is an exhibition of recent and new paintings from Matt Antoniak and Phil Frankland. The show is the result of a continuing back and forth conversation between the artists since 2017, exchanging ideas and critique.

Antoniak and Frankland both inherit the tropes of painting, but any such history appears to be hereditary – instead of following this modus operandi to mimicry, it is used as a platform to explore flexible interpretations of source materials and the appropriation of the preconceived image. The blatancy and honesty in both artists’ work is indicative of practices striving to filter information, to reduce the din of contemporary life to simpler but highly charged gestures of intent.

 


The former 36 Lime Street Gallery was established in 2009 as an artist run space to provide a platform for emerging and established artists to experiment and take risks with new work. Selected by committee from an open call, 8 proposals are selected and exhibited throughout the year.

The gallery space continues to provide a platform as 36.
