Kathryn McNaughton @ Beers London

8 June 2018 - 21 July 2018

Kathryn MacNaughton begins her artistic process by creating digital compositions that are afterwards meticulously recreated in paint, creating crisp lines and boldly coloured shapes reminiscent of the hard-edge graphic painting style popularised in the 1980s and early 1990s. MacNaughton’s main concerns revolve around the employment of illusion, abstraction and optical effect, evoking the work of artists such as Josef Albers, Frank Stella, or Briget Riley, wherein bold colors and sharp line-work recall the starkness of geometric abstraction with a nod to the gestural play of figurative forms.  It seems that with the works in Intervals, MacNaughton creates a type of ‘orderly’ movement, where through structure, and a heavily digitally-influenced image, the painting itself seems to emancipate itself from its foundations and suggest something else altogether.
