Ex Vivo – Fiona Pardington

Two Rooms    Oct 31-Nov 29 2014

“These works also mark the debut of a unique new gesso substrate for the images, developed especially for Fiona. Twenty layers of gesso and other materials, sanded, and stretched on cedar wood, create a robust and unreflective surface that doesn’t require glass and allows great durability and flexibility in size. Printing the image onto a painted surface further emphasises the art-historical references to the painting tradition and careful manipulations of light and colour in her work”
