Alice Wormald: Uncertain Circle

May 20 - June 13

Alice Wormald, Space Without Sequence, 2020. Oil on linen, 140 x 110cm. Courtesy: the artist and Gallery 9, Sydney.

Alice Wormald’s exhibition Uncertain Circle presents a series of new paintings using the process of collaging collected imagery to assemble teetering structures of form, space, figuration and abstraction. These fragmentary vignettes are used as source material for paintings.​ ​Drawing on printed material from old books, Wormald created arrangements made up of decontextualised parts that now exist as coloured forms, patterns, or stranded objects that assume new functions.

When Wormald transforms the collaged arrangements into paintings, she merges, adapts and repeats disparate forms, creating ​visual continuity and rhythm between the works. Following a perceptive visual logic, she accentuates shadows, negative space and complex layering, creating a playful ambiguity. This layering disrupts the reading of edges and blank spaces, inviting the eye to dip between foreground and background. Content and meaning are stripped away so that the pictures become visual conversations permeated with speculation and uncertainty.

Exhibition opens: Wednesday 20 May 2020
