LLE is an artist-led curatorial project with a focus on contemporary painting, its discourse, and creating practical dialogues between artists. 'Lle’ is the Welsh word for place, and by having no fixed place, LLE have the freedom to interact and engage with artist practice in new ways.

The exhibition at BayArt will explore notions of the studio as both concept and location. In LLE's own words - "Artists do not ‘retreat to the studio’; through a studio-based painting practice the artists reacquaint themselves with other places or ‘lleoedd’, reimaging a world, not merely observing and recording it in paint." The exhibition examines this idea of ‘stiwdio/ lle’ ‘studio/place’ in contemporary painting as a place that engenders internal thoughts and external imaginings.

The exhibition is curated by Liam O’Connor and the participating artists are - Aglaé Bassens, Anna Freeman Bentley, Mathew Burrows, Andrew Cranston, Gordon Dalton, Lara Davies, Dan Howard-Birt and Iwan Lewis.

LLE will take this show to The Manchester Contemporary 27th -29th October 2017
