Where era's elide
MetadataShow full item record
During the months of October and November 2015 James Cobb and I researched the work of Mark Rothko (1903 - 1970)2 and Donald Judd (1928 - 1994)3 at various locations in Texas. This became the basis for ten large-scale paintings that were eventually edited and installed as two large painting works at Flight Gallery. The final work explored the relationship of installed works of art to architectural environments using an acrylic paint layering technique that drew upon James’s experience of graphic design applications and my own experience working with the body through performance art, and the gesture in painting through the material properties of paint. The collaboration involved an ongoing practical and theoretical discourse concerning audience/viewer assumptions and expectations of painting. This was considered from the perspective of shared histories, and artistic collaboration; and how painting in particular can be experienced as an expanded practice.
