Fernanda Gomes @ Alison Jacques Gallery

1 February 2017 - 15 March 2017

An exhibition by renowned Brazilian artist Fernanda Gomes. It represents the most recent pieces of her investigation on painting, and she will continue working in the gallery space for three weeks prior to the exhibition opening, using it as an extension of her studio. This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, developing research that has been ongoing for over 30 years.
Fernanda Gomes’ work reveals a renewed focus on painting, questioning not only what defines a painting, but also what constitutes a painting exhibition and how we can experience it. The artist will compose and create dialogues between various autonomous pieces, made of canvas, wood and paint. While colour may at first appear to be absent, by the exclusive use of white paint, the work challenges us to observe the subtle spectrum that informs our perception of colour. Her work references the hundred-year-old history of monochrome and abstraction, and also recalls the geometry and modulated surfaces in the Brazilian Neo-Concrete movement of the 1960s.
