SIX SECOND GALLERY presents Rachel Warriner
COMING TOGETHER 08 09 17 In formal terms we have acrylic paintings of semi-abstract motifs suspended above wide horizons and hovering around loosely painted grids or vanishing points. Some are a gesture towards seascapes most often taken from a continued study of the Norfolk Coast, although Warriner is based in London. Details taken from life or found images become duplicated/rotated/intertwined and are repeated in several works. Tracks curve, disappear and begin to resemble horns. An irregular mesh (perhaps a fence) holds the eye at the surface of the painting while light recedes on the horizontal plane. This griddy/organic interplay is continually changing, varied, strange and romantic. Emotive titles return us to some self-consciousness. Alongside complete paintings Warriner will fill the larger wall of the gallery with multiple studies. This continues SIX SECOND’s interest in showing work at the process stage during this series of solo exhibitions. Let us not pretend we know what the larger paintings will be yet. Warriner is such a vigorous and spontaneous being that these works are nowhere near dry. © Galen Riley 2017 SIX SECOND is an intermittent exhibition programme hosted by artist Galen Riley in Ridley Road, Dalston, London.
