Nobility Pursuit is a developmental ONLINE exhibition in which St Margaret’s House tenant and artist James Alexander McKenzie showcases some paintings which are part of an ongoing body of work. McKenzie’s allegorical painting’s principle interest is Being. Influenced by different philosophical attitudes, his whimsical paintings meditate joyfully on its different manifestations, drawing largely from personal experience. His work’s chief motivations are humility, compassion and simplicity.

This ONLINE exhibition showcases the work of four artists who have worked throughout the COVID-19 lockdown and responded to it in different ways. The last four months have left some of us with a sense of severance from our connection with everyday activities and a break from our usual practice. However, our need to reconnect and communicate with each other and audiences remains strong. The work we show is our attempt to overcome the disconnect imposed by the viral pandemic and respond to our precious world.
