Ways of Being Out, To Make Moves Within

Jenkins, Kyle (2020) Ways of Being Out, To Make Moves Within. In: Painting On Top Of Itself 2015 - 2020: Five Exhibitions Discussing Contemporary Painting. Loophole Press, Toowoomba, Australia, pp. 47-53. ISBN 9780646829548


Abstract

This was a series of five exhibitions discussing movements in contemporary painting involving thirteen national and international artists. The five exhibitions were separated into themes of Painting as Palimpsest, The Agreeable Surface, The Painting Word, Painting in a Visually Saturated Culture and Paintings Renewal. Collectively the exhibitions and participating artists and published book, debate and explore the evolution and development of Contemporary, Reductive and Non-Objective Painting in the second decade of the 21st Century. The book and artists involved have continued to work outside the parameters of popular art movements, consistently investigating conceptual intentions associated with the autonomous qualities of painting such as geometry, surface, pigment, line and form. The DIY nature of their working outcomes encourages a constructive aesthetic as well as an inclusive nature towards an ongoing historical dialogue. The artists included in the shows make works that sit both within and beyond the traditional picture frame and this considered extension is pursued in the nature of their continued dialogue with each other: regardless of nationality or culture there is a conceptual and academic salute to the Reductive and Non Objective practitioner, within both the individual and the genre as a working whole.
