Viewing Quench Gallery, Margate

Thought-provoking contemporary artists Davinia-Ann Robinson and Natalia Gonzalez Martin are the subject of a new show at Quench Gallery in Margate. This brilliant not-for-profit venture offers emerging artists and curators the space and opportunity to develop new work and stage exhibitions. Which in the current climate is more of a lifeline than ever!

The works on display explore the paradoxes of soul and the capacity to ‘continue to exist through time but also to endure’ in the face of hardship. Drawing inspiration from icon paintings, Gonzalez investigates the impact of cultural and religious heritage on the physical body and moral codes; while Robinson examines how ‘presencing, fugitivity and tactility undo colonial and imperial frameworks through which nature and Bodies of Colour are articulated.’

The ideas are complex, but the resulting work is engrossing. Jump on a train — if you feel safe and comfortable doing so — for this small but tightly-curated exhibition packs a punch.
