In thinking about burnouts, and the act of doing one, we think of traction or, more specifically, a lack of. The rubbery trace left exists as evidence of movement. Similarly, the painted brush mark is a trace of the hand and the individual moving around that surface. The works in Burnouts playfully engage with the anachronistic relationship between these mark-making pursuits while simultaneously looking at the psychological condition of burnout. Despite the title, these works ask you to slow down and contemplate the patchwork of specifically coloured gestures and open spaces. – Belem Lett
