Opening Thursday 13 October, 6-8pm Exhibition Friday 14 October – Saturday 12 November 2016
Loose Ends will present a selection of non-figurative paintings by Jahnne Pasco-White, Nell Pearson and Meagan Wyke, to examine the myriad of ways in which the artists apply pigment to surfaces. The works in the exhibition are varied; layers of brushstrokes form thick gritty textures on canvas. Sitting alongside will be a large sheet of un-stretched linen dyed with found pigment, accompanied by minimal works with surfaces that have been etched into. While each piece presents a unique approach to mark making, there is also movement and fluidity within the grouping of works. The artists in Loose Ends demonstrate a shared focus on the process and materiality of painting, rather than creating work with a fixed end in sight.
