Bett Gallery is proud to present Collusion, an exhibition of new works by Irene Briant.
Collusion will not disappoint followers of the artist’s seminal sculptural work nor will it fail to intrigue those unfamiliar with her oeuvre.
For Collusion, Briant continues her long-time exploration of the relationality of objects, masterfully seeking, sorting and arranging Wunderkammer-like works that are as geometrically referent as they are intuitively precise. Briant’s aesthetic precision has 3-dimensional objects in such successful communication—a perfectly chaotic patterning that is as legible as it is unpredictable— that they teeter on the edge of dimensional collapse. Think of the resolute flattening of abstraction; a Mondrian or a Miro caught between the real and the virtual through that tense play of edges, colours, shapes. Briant however is more interested in the transition; the works reject the resolute to instead resolve before us.
Briant is brilliant with objects—with shape, with colour, with all of life’s hard edges—but she is equally brilliant with these things as they travel from past to present to future, softly pulling, fading, coupling, holding.
Opening night 24th September 5:30 – 7:30pm.
