Moments in Time
This Exhibition will feature two artists work that captures a moment in time.
Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf uses the figure to convey this sentiment, while Jenny Pockley uses the landscape.
Rebecca Fontaine-Wolf’s paintings are a visual meditation on womanhood. Somewhere between a dream and reality: this body of work offers snapshots of intimate moments in time. It presents an impression of a journey through womanhood, from adolescence to maturity. Weaving together a sense of internal and external experiences through a playful balancing act between figuration and abstraction. Precise mark making is juxtaposed with broad gestural strokes and sharp geometric elements to produce paintings which seem to shift and evolve in front of the viewers eyes.
Jenny Pockley’s paintings appear to be suspended in time. They are still, beautiful; imagery created by the fall of light. Brush marks or evidence of the artist’s activities are absent; the surface is smooth and softened to enhance the mystery in these works. The paintings cultivate the viewer’s emotions and assimilate memories and yet are representative of all times. They verge on the abstract as the viewer becomes absorbed by the subtle play of colours reminiscent of Rothko. For Jenny, the process of how to make the work is vital and says something about the content of the work. The paint quality is made up of thin veils of colour which are washed onto an ultra-smooth gesso or copper surface; the tonal variations built up and softened using the ‘wet into wet’ process. The materials and surfaces used are key to the work and add to its delicate timelessness and so ultimately as time is spent looking at these paintings, they appear to hover and envelop the viewer.
There will be a complimentary supporting exhibition alongside of gallery artists.
