Deborah Poynton's solo show, Pictures at an Exhibition, comprises large-scale figurative and landscape paintings, continuing her ongoing contemplation of the interplay between our perceptions of reality and of the painted surface.  She purposefully describes these new works as pictures rather than paintings to emphasise the constructed nature of an image which is often overlooked. We tend to emphasise narrative and expressive emotions when looking at paintings rather than seeing the devices and pictorial references that underlie the image and are consciously assembled to create a desired meaning and effect.
