Description

Paintings unseen moon circle the rectangle, dragging matter in; hands, geological iota, cliffs, shelters and fugitives. Inside the frame, all these things and more cross paths. Rooms and landscapes collapse into one another, undoing their boundaries. The minute mirrors the massive; the representational begins to abstract.

It is this gravitation towards flux that connects the work of Anthea Kemp, Loralee Newitt and Laura Skerlj; an image making less concerned with accurate illustration than paintings material imperative to exaggerate, erase, and move compositional elements in and out of view. In this way memory would resemble/a cross-section of the earths core, everything that came before filtering up to meet an indistinct future.

Inside, space brims. Intimate subjectivities are lured by an overarching cosmic force or fate. Landscapes seek the containment found in architecture, while rooms move past any foreseeable horizon. There are human things: losses, wishes, and bruises. Wild things too: mountains and their limits, lakes and their depths. Here, space is not abandoned but in mediation, with matter moving in, as thoughts do, and out, in exhale.
