Sum of Sound Waves by Séraphine Pick
3 July – 1 August 2020
Mossman Gallery, Level 2, 22 Garrett St, Wellington
In this new body of work, paintings shift restlessly in form between a painterly spectrum of dilation and contraction. Within the mode of dilation, wide watery brush strokes stretch dynamically across the surface, charged with emotive uncertainty. Within the mode of contraction, highly controlled dense mark making yields tightly orchestrated still life scenes that resonate a quivering light on the surface of ordinary things. There is a charged atmosphere across the works.
