A carousel represents a quick succession of objects or bodies in motion. This idea offers a unique overview of the sensory 'spin' that abstraction might aim to provoke through colour, form and materiality. Through painting and sculptural installation,Carousel grasps this concept metaphorically by confronting multiple notions, such as the use of language, geometric or gestural systems and the examination of the material of paint itself.
The intention of the show is to simulate the intensityand absorption of a play space, that spins the audience around through a succession of stimulating interactions.Such a panorama highlights the similarities and differences between each investigation and opens up an endless dialogue between research and material-based practices in the discipline of abstract painting today. The heterogeneous nature of the works aims to provoke an optical and tactile dizziness. Thus allowing the works to become distorted or placed into focus to probe at the myriad possibilities of material manipulation.
