‘…tremendously vivid paintings by Chris Gollon that explore the idea of defeat on the water. All defeat is painful – that is what sport means. All glory is measured in the tears of the losers. But in rowing, complete exhaustion accompanies the fact that you are not, in fact, good enough; body and spirit are simultaneously and devastatingly shattered. The poor rowers, exposed in front of us, generally huge men in tiny, ill-fitting boats, can do nothing but show the world their pain.’
