SOFT. HARD. EASY
Presented by c3 Projects
Here begins an art of incremental shifts backwards and forwards – each rectangle presented as a snapshot of phase transition. Very little, almost nothing.
These objects are derived from a succession of encounters – formal, material, institutional and social. The Gertrude Sequence emerges from a series of propositions born out of an engagement with the materiality of paint, textile, the properties of support structures and how objects relate to an ‘exhibition’ space.
Outwardly, these are formal exercises, realist images without illusions where registration of the process by which the work is made becomes its content. However, (quiet in appearance and made by an introvert) they brim with spectres of encounter and conversation – studio visitors, mum’s knitting, tumbleweed methodology, neo-materialism, soft eyes, et cetera…
