Jess Fuller @ Herald St
14 November 2018 - 9 February 2019
But what might be forwards for Jess Fuller is usually backwards for others in her unique, invented process of painting. It’s a physical, performative painting in several acts – tearing, washing, layering, spraying and sewing. Canvas, for Fuller, is not something that paintings are made on, arriving pre-stretched and primed, but something her paintings are made with. It is as inherent a material as the acrylic and gesso; her compositions are made in consultation with the fabric’s grain, which forms a patchwork cast of irregular-shaped characters. At times they lean on one another, square up to one another; often, they appear as if posing – poised in position like carefully arranged elements of a still life.
