Artist Notes:
Paul Beauchamp is the only artist who has a work in the collection previously (CASW 425) – but his work has taken a significant change of direction. Making the lens the means of achieving images does not make these images into ‘photographs’ in the ordinary sense, they are very much to do with the forms and structures of his earlier drawings, but also ironic in their ‘painterly’ qualities. These three C type prints, taken over a period of years, are of a cafe on Rover way, an industrial hinterland of Cardiff, but it could be Nebraska, it could be Mexico, anywhere, anytime. They have a beauty common to all his images, but it is difficult to work out why. They are not conventional or sentimental.
