ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
This is a collection of two halves: time + space, that together create a thematic melting pot as an exploration of healing.
The three ‘time’ paintings are on white canvas and capture a journey: the beginning, the middle and the end. The thick paint, sculpted and scratched, intermingles with oil drips and messy charcoal creating a feeling of movement across time.
The contrasting, yet related, monochromatic circle paintings, depict space in a literal as well as philosophical sense. Exploding edges and constructed ordered lines create a duality of spheres. They are orbs of colour, possibility and optimism, yet they all contain an expansive centre, a hole that seems to be torn from the exposed canvas, in the space beneath.
ABOUT MARIANNE b. 1982
If Marianne Moore’s paintings were poems they would be confessional.
A painter since her teens, each piece is an outpouring onto canvas of reactions to events in her life. She says that she has a compulsion to paint. She paints to come to terms with, and understand, situations and to explore new possibilities. Her process of sculpting, and scratching away thick oil paint, combined with a self-confessed impatience, give her paintings a feeling of movement, depth and disorder.
Many of her paintings appear to depict holes. These holes are focal points and their different qualities represent emotional evolution: from the paintings that are almost entirely a raw nothingness, to those that have more controlled and refined empty spaces.
