I'm super excited to finally share what I've been busy working on with the amazing
team at Boom Gallery. 'Internal Geometries', a group exhibition featuring Ellie Malin, Alichia van Rhijn and myself is now open. Each of these artists use form and structure in their work to process and explore memories, experiences and the subconscious.
Group Show // Boom Gallery
October 7th - 31st
Boom Gallery, 11 Rutland Street, Newtown, VIC 3220
There is a harmonious tension to these new works as slabs of colour, both dense and soft, float weightlessly though space. Elements of geometric structure appear in almost all areas of the works, with rigid lines and flat solid blocks of colour softly dissolving at the edges. Expressive textures layered amongst the works provide energy and life, reminding us that these works are built up layer by layer over time.
The fluid quality in my practice is achieved through a playful process of intuition and improvisation, as I gradually build up layers of paint, with no end goal in sight. Residue of gestures and under layers is always present, with watery washes and drips of blue streaking through the backgrounds, suggesting stormy skies and memories from times gone by. Layered on top of these charged surfaces, I build up juicy blocks of opaque paint resembling architecture against the sky. These block of colour hover intimately close to one another, creating a harmonious tension with the layers beneath to create a floating abstract world.
