Gwenyth Fugard @ Lisa Norris Gallery

8 September 2020 - 3 October 2020

In the artist’s own words “My interest in painting lies with non-representation and abstraction. I have no desire to make obvious comment or narrative about external worldly matters when painting. My focus resides in the process and construction of the work, allowing unplanned outcomes to emerge. I prefer to leave the painting where something is suggested for the viewer to sense the familiar and to evoke a contemplative response.

The paintings present a visual language of marks and punctuations which re-emerge and characterise the works. I often apply additional layers of textile to the surface, building an additional skin, resulting in the works appearing quite bodily. I attempt to create contrasts and divisions, disruptions and calm whilst oscillating between excess and restraint. These contrasts are often achieved through a vertical division of parts, exposing light and dark, calm and unrest, disturbance and order.

The works operate as self-contained worlds exposing the process of their making. Evidence of this decision making is offered as I construct and often deconstruct the surface, adding and removing paint until the work finds a resting place.”
