Gallery 3
Andrea Eckersley

Recasting the relationship between the body and painting, Mantle/Mantel explores how material elements such as garment, sculpture, wall and lighting are implicated in the realisation of an artwork. Geometric shapes in the painting are reiterated in the surfaces of the garment, cast shadows and shelf: coalescing as a total composition. The resulting assemblage of surfaces elaborate Eckersley’s ongoing interest in the human subject implied in encounters with art.
