Jenny Topfer: Paintings

November 14, 2019 - December 24, 2019

Jenny Topfer, Yet there is a chasing and a floating II, 2018. Oil and wax pigment stick, charcoal, pastel and graphite on linen, 211 x 183cm. Courtesy: the artist and Fox Jensen Gallery, Sydney.

 

Jenny Topfer’s paintings pretend to be white but are in fact substantiated by a complex morphology of pigment and structure, of gesture and body. As tempting as it might be to see their relative whiteness as evidence of distillation, even a cleansing of the burdens of visual fatigue, Topfer’s white allows the painting to be something ‘other’.

The artist’s gestural adventure chooses to operate on a chromatic margin so that as viewers, we too might approach seeing, or more particularly perceiving, with a heightened sense of refinement and judgement.

This is Topfer’s first solo exhibition in Fox Jensen’s Sydney gallery, and the artist will be present at the opening.

 

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Thursday 14 November
