SUB/DIVIDE presents a new body of abstract works by Hayley Scilini alongside a site-specific painting installation in the Alternating Current Gallery space. This new series of paintings on wooden panels explore the artists’ interest in using contrasting colours and oblique geometric forms to create spatially ambiguous images. The paintings have been derived from the process of re-examining photographic documentation of older abstract works by the artist, which are then cut up and rearranged into collages using a grid format.
The grid serves as a means to further disrupt and confound pictorial space, creating slippages between foreground and background.
The accompanying painting installation aims to exaggerate the spatial disorientation of the painted works by extending the pictorial space onto the gallery walls.
