Louise Gresswell: Re-Form

June 17 - July 11

Louise Gresswell, Untitled (blue), 2020. Oil on board, 34 × 27cm. Courtesy: the artist and Gallery 9, Sydney.

Gallery 9 presents Re-Form, an exhibition featuring work by Louise Gresswell. Gresswell explores the psychological and the intuitive through non-representational painting. Her textural paintings form sensory narratives as the painted boards are broken and re-formed with a subtle rawness. Imperfections of the handmade are welcomed as individual paintings grow into their own eccentricities.

Investigating her own subjectivity and its relationship to vulnerability and protection, Gresswell explores the materiality of paint. Thick, gritty layers of paint are gradually built up over time, and sometimes scraped, dug into and pared back. The debris of the studio is utilised as holes are patched and cracks are stuffed with whatever is at hand, string, canvas, hessian and cardboard. There is an act of defiance in the cutting and an implied comfort within the suturing.

The gallery is adhering to COVID-19 social distancing measures. Please contact the gallery before you visit to arrange a suitable viewing time.
