The idea for this exhibition generated out of a shared interest, between the four participating artists, in the relationship between process, chance and formal outcome within their work. Rather than being bound by the doctrine that has historically defined a formal approach, the work within the show pursues a more natural, unconscious kind of formalism. The thread linking the work is the fact that chance is in some way internalised within the outcome. Within the works is the sense of an ‘incidental’ formalism: formal outcomes are the by-product of a process, system or action rather than the result of any marked attention to arrangement, style or artistic means.
