B.a.d Lab: Test Results #4
Laurien Dumbar, Barbara Helmer, Romée van Oers
Opening: Friday 7 December, 4 p.m – 8 p.m.
Exhibition: 8 and 9 December, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m or by appointment
B.a.d Lab: Test Results is a series of weekend exhibitions, pairing artists from B.a.d with invited guests. Together they experiment with forms of exhibiting.
Laurien Dumbar, Barbara Helmer, and Romée van Oers each engage with Formalist painting in their own distinct way. Patient gradients are put into dialogue with expressive swooshes and layering à la Photoshop. The images in their works emerge from considerations about the gesture and innovative handling of materials. Each gesture has a different tempo and its own visual intent. Their pursuit of image is often realised through an acute sense of precision. They celebrate the power and paradox of these gestures in a tenacious and enduring manner.
In B.a.d Lab: Test Results #4 Romée van Oers, Laurien Dumbar, and Barbara Helmer combine works in different media. Each of their gestures materialises in a different way on specific medium and, as such, each is present in a different dimension in the exhibition space.
