George Meyrick uses simple geometric forms to create an uncertain visual experience where shapes can be read as linear, planar or solid. Elements may appear to exist in one plane but then enter into another. Other resolutions are an important part of the viewer’s experience. What is visible is incomplete and only finished in the imagination, discovered rather than invented.
Meyrick's solo exhibition uses the positive and negative corners of the walls as the location for structures and drawings that play with colour, illusion and form in response to the architectural features of the building. These site-specific drawings incorporate the architectural spaces of Drawing Projects UK and its heritage setting, the former Wiltshire Working Men's Conservative Benefit Society's purpose-built Holloway House that opened in 1929.
