Abstract

‘Beyond the Endgame’ was an exhibition curated by Ben Cook to showcase North West of England artists whose practice explored painting as an extended practice. I was selected on the strength of previous work where my paintings had extended beyond a canvas support into the exhibiting space and working with materials other than paint, while still discussing within a painting discourse. I was commissioned by Manchester Art Gallery to produce a new installation/expanded painting, for any part of the building to supplement the other 8 artists whose work was displayed in the traditional gallery space. This was displayed alongside a pre-existing painting Rose (painting my Nan would like) that was the starting point for the installation. The resulting piece transformed the huge (13 X 9 metre) window opposite the gallery space into an abstract painting, continuing a research interest in the tension of a hybrid between the abstract/representational and a painting and other art forms. Using a drawing of a scribbled dot and through digital technology, the initial mark was reproduced hundreds of times in laser cut vinyl which covered the window. A long established interest in audience reaction then informed potential readings. The viewer could see the abstract vinyl dots, the representation of the view out of the window or a fusion of the two. To supplement the exhibition and its themes, a catalogue (ISBN 0-901673-633) was produced with texts by Ben Cook, Tim Dunbar, Janis Jefferies, David Sweet and Roger Wilson. The exhibition was reviewed nationally in Art Monthly (10/03) by Dan Smith and in the Guardian (9/9/03) by Alfred Hickling, as well as local newspapers including M.E.N and the Metro. Vision Incision has since been shown at Draiocht, Dublin.
