Borrowing and bastardising the methodical languages of architecture, archaeology and the archive, Genevieve Felix Reynolds explores the translation of the physical into the abstract and pictorial. For her, the recent ubiquity of the digital screen is re-defining how we think and see.
By combining painted objects and photography with abstract geometry, the artist navigates between flatness and the three-dimensional, emphasising the necessity of first-hand experience and distinguishing between the mathematically perfect and the handmade. Spanning painting, video and installation, Health provokes reconsidered relationships between surface, space and screen.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 10 July 2019
