Colours collide in seemingly irresolvable contests. It is as if each colour possesses fierce will and determination – even those that might appear to be subservient at first resist submission. The spectacular frames feel appropriate so as to hold these chromatic frays within a field of contest.
Lavender arm wrestles green, deep blue intervenes and declares it a “no contest”, both deemed more than worthy. But for all the skirmishes these are paintings about resolution – both as a function of courage but also of judgement. And whilst they avoid easy harmony they do ultimately aspire to a state of heightened equilibrium.
This is the 11th exhibition that Fox Jensen & Fox Jensen McCrory have made with Tomislav Nikolic.
Opening night Thursday 18 March 5:30 to 7:30pm.
