A Catalyst for Remembrance
6 – 27 September 2013
Alzbeta Jaresova solo show
The inaugural winner of the Griffin Art Prize, Jaresova has been working in the artists’ studio above the Griffin Gallery since February. Exploring themes of physical and psychological confinement, Jaresova makes beautifully rendered drawings, paintings and three dimensional models.
The winner of the Griffin Art Prize has access to any materials of choice from Winsor & Newton, Conté à Paris and Liquitex. Jaresova took the opportunity to re-discover oil paints and the exhibition will showcase paintings made with her characteristically subdued palette. She experimented with the drying times of different Winsor & Newton mediums to create thin layers of paint that allow for a play between the image and the ground. The artists’ studio is on the same floor as the Innovation and Development laboratory allowing Jaresova access to products and processes she would not have otherwise considered.
