Martin Shaw: Imaginalia

20 February24 February

ONCA is delighted to host Martin Shaw’s first solo exhibition in ten years: Imaginalia.

In summer 2018, Martin Shaw found himself painting. For three months, all day every day he would walk out to his studio and begin. It wasn’t exactly planned, it was something that happened. Imaginalia is an exhibition that brings together much of the work created over that time. From graphite drawings to large oil paintings we witness someone working at the edge of their imagination, towards what Henry Corbin called the Mundus Imaginalis, an imagination that is more than human. Emerging from the work is fragments of old Greek and Celtic myths, all tied up with motifs and snatches of words from Shaw’s wider life and life as a mythologist.

As part of the show, we will be celebrating the release of Shaw’s highly anticipated new book, The Night Wages, a work intimately connected to the paintings.
