Coleman Projects presents Cosmic Laziness, an exhibition of new works by painter Tim Renshaw (2-59/60) alongside a film installation by Swiss artist Klodin Erb.

The notebook is the central motif for Renshaw’s concise series of works on metal that present a variety of architectural painterly propositions. Hung in pairs, they operate much like the pages of a book; each ground at once implying the sense of an object of many layers and, collectively, a set of surfaces in conversation across the margins. 

Renshaw is known for his beautiful, meticulously manufactured paintings of Modern structures. In recent years he has been playing with the idea of the painted surface as page and form as notation, as part of his ongoing creation of a visual shorthand for organisational systems synonymous with the built environment. His hybrid entities leave one with the sense of having encountered them before, that they may already exist somewhere in the mind as a result of a previous encounter, whether in reality or reproduction.
