The ques­tion of why artists bother to paint representational works when you could just take a pho­to­graph is old and tired at this stage, but if you’re still look­ing for an­swers, head to Kathy Ty­nan’s cur­rent show to see just how sat­is­fy­ing the in­jec­tion of a dif­fer­ent vi­sion is to the ev­ery­day. With sub­jects rang­ing from lap­top com­put­ers, to dogs and cats, to spring blos­soms, to a patch of weeds against an or­ange-red sky, ex­pect a se­ries of in­sights into those mo­ments that can evap­o­rate into half-caught mem­o­ries or moods – un­less we pay proper at­ten­tion. It’s se­ri­ously strong paint­ing, too.
