About

This Thursday join artist Whitney McVeigh, Sotiris Kyriacou (curator) and JJ Charlesworth (writer and reviews editor of Art Review) for an informal tour of the artist?s show at A Foundation.

A Foundation?s exhibition of new work by McVeigh features monoprints, collages and works on found paper. McVeigh?s work has a vivid immediacy which celebrates the potential of the medium to suggest, rather than define, possible readings. In a series of large-scale monoprints, the black acrylic, rich and tactile in its material presence, is coaxed into yielding interpretations that refuse to settle.

In the collages, this fertile indeterminacy keeps the viewer busy through a free association of word and image. Also showing are works on found paper. McVeigh isolates pages from sources such as sailing manuals, old encyclopaedias and book keeping ledgers and assaults them with drawing or mark-making, prompting dialogues through obliteration and accretion.
