An exploration of the boundaries between photography and painting.
Candlestar and Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill, the official hotel partner for the Frieze Art Fair, are proud to present Painting with Light, an exploration of
the boundaries between photography and painting, through the work of five artists - Susan Derges, Marcus Doyle, Brian Griffin, Tom Hunter and Yvonne de Rosa.
Each of these artists makes photographs that are painterly both in execution and technique, and very often carry echoes and allusions to paintings of the past, be it
those of the Renaissance or the Dutch ‘Golden Age’.
The word ‘photography’ derives from Greek, literally meaning ‘drawing with light’. In the hands of these five artists light itself becomes the ultimate creative tool.
