Romée van Oers
Opening Friday 7 December 2018, 4 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Exhibition on 8, 9 December, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. or by appointment
Laurien Dumbar, Barbara Helmer, and Romée van Oers each engage with Formalist painting in their own distinctive ways. Patient gradients converse with expressive swooshes and layering à la Photoshop. The works’ images emerge from considerations about the gesture and innovative handling of materials. Each step has a different tempo and visual intent. Their pursuit of image requires a sense of precision. They work with the power and expression of these gestures in ever resourceful ways.
