Hatch, breed, fester. Bringing together Susie Hamilton and Mimei Thompson, the drawn and painted works in Grub Party ruminate on poetic presentations of metamorphoses.

About

Situated in Transition Two’s cloche-like space, delicate drawings meet slick paintings in a generative unfolding alluding to an abundance of life made possible through an interrelated world of carnivalesque festivity. 

Susie Hamilton’s reading of Ovid’s Metamorphoses has led to the creation of slippery non-human bodies situated in a dreamlike world; one where divinities, people, animals, insects and plants are constantly morphing in a process of fluid vulnerability.

Mimei Thompson, on the other hand, explores subject matter ranging from 17th century Dutch still life to Japanese ikebana. Through her intricate microcosms Thompson transforms these naturalist influences, creating dramatized tabletop-style paintings filled with biomorphic life.

Hamilton and Thompson approach painting in very different ways; by uniting slippery acrylic, and intricate oil, Grub Party playfully writhes with an unpredictability, one akin to the painting process, to create images that are themselves about a process of poetic transformation.
