Inspired by the 17th Century Dutch old masters but with a foot firmly in the future, Chris Kettle's show, Dutch Goggles, is an exploration and a challenge of an under-explored genre - still life painting.
Often ambiguous, his subject matter - from the chalice to the logo to new figures and statues - makes this show a definitive move away from previous works, and a rebellious take on both modern and old.
His intricate pieces and deft, beautiful brush strokes have produced striking and emotional paintings that use a mixture of traditional still life subjects and new graphic elements. Come see exquisite new works from a master of the brush and the illusion.
