S|2 is proud to present This Side of Paradise curated by Jane Neal. This selling exhibition brings together some of Europe's most evocative and intriguing contemporary painters, with several of the artists making their London debut.
Tilo Baumgärtel, Marius Bercea, Zsolt Bodoni, Tim Eitel, Chantal Joffe, Michael Kunze, Marcin Maciejowski, Justin Mortimer, Rosa Loy, Daniel Pitín, Ged Quinn, Şerban Savu, Mircea Suciu, Alexander Tinei, Caroline Walker and Matthias Weischer share a fascination for society and human nature in all its messy imperfection as well as the paradoxical 'double vision' that so often characterises artists and writers: the desire to be in the thick of things and to be validated by the world which they simultaneously stand apart from and critique, at times with incisive, brutal honesty.
'This side of paradise...there's little comfort in the wise'
