An exhibition of dictated drawing, hopeless mimicry, and sad lumps.

About

The work in this exhibition explores themes of muted isolation and juxtaposition. Formal notions of composition are run against particular painterly  processes in order to create an environment that engages with illusionistic depth and the limits of optical space within a surface. 

Reactions to fizzing digitalisation are interpreted through specific colour choices and considered arrangement of free-floating forms. These gnawing and acidic fizzes have been subdued by attempting to address and accept materiality within the work; the use of spray paint and charcoal has allowed a small level of sabotage to be incorporated that struggles to undermine a controlling nature and allow a measure of unpredictability to emerge. 

Foundations rooted in the idea of dictated drawing and visual pacing have arisen; small actions are translated into large actions, dichotomous relationships appear, and the hand is always a slave to previous “undecisions”. The images have moved away from associations with figurative representation, although ties to figuration still exist in the use of the brushstroke and the oscillation that exists between recognition and abstraction.

These are The Bin Bag Variations.
