Saturday 12th March – 7th May 2022

A group exhibition exploring contemporary painting in Britain showcasing a selection of works from members of the CBP group.

The artist-led group Contemporary British Painting (CBP) brings the exhibition ‘Paradoxes’ to Quay Arts, Newport in March 2022. This exhibition of 52 painters includes 48 artists from the CBP membership who are based throughout the British Isles, and four guest artists from the Isle of Wight.

The exhibition has been organised and selected by CBP artist members Freya Purdue, a resident on the Isle of Wight, and Southsea-based Natalie Dowse and Phil Illingworth. The four additional invited artists from the island are: Jo Hummel, Charles Inge, Lisa Traxler and Marius von Brasch.

‘Paradoxes’ is an exhibition showcasing the breadth of contemporary painting practice which is very much alive and thriving in the UK today. CBP membership is made up of internationally exhibiting and award winning artists, producing regular exhibitions from amongst its membership and guest artists. The group returns to Quay Arts following its hugely successful Summer exhibition of 2016.

Contemporary British Painting is an artist led organisation which explores and promotes current trends in British painting through group exhibitions, talks, publications, and by placing paintings in art museums. The group also founded the The Contemporary British Painting Prize in 2016, an annual prize promoting the best of contemporary painting produced in the British Isles. The CBP Prize 2021 was won by exhibiting artist Susan Absolon.
