Paul Winstanley
Threshold
Paintings 1989–2007

“You would not know where to begin to read the image. It looks simple enough. […] There are so many routes into the image, so many points of recognition within the composition, and yet you do not know where to begin and, for that matter, where to close off or frame your reading. In Paul Winstanley’s work the image is defined according to a frame of perception, where the image exists both to represent a scene witnessed, and to convey a position for the viewer within that. This much is given. Where the witness once was so now you stand in a reconstruction of the scene. This much you think you know.”
(Andrew Renton, “Deferred landscapes: A view from the threshold in the paintings of Paul Winstanley”)

Threshold is the first extensive survey of British artist Paul Winstanley’s career to date, with over a 100 colour images and texts by Andrew Renton, Director of Curating at Goldsmiths, University of London and Christel Fricke, Professor of Philosophy, University of Oslo.

The substantial 144-page full colour catalogue was published by Artspace and Clouds on the occasion of the exhibition Paul Winstanley: Paintings 1989–2007 currently showing at Artspace, Auckland, New Zealand, 26 April – 31 May 2008.
