The Informalities of Shit Miracle

Emma Beer

17 Mar 2011 to 27 Mar 2011

Beer’s recent paintings are dark and deliciously heavy, but these qualities are complemented and enriched by sensual subtleties of tone and texture; layering and detail; chaos and order. Through these formal tensions, the viewer can’t help but be drawn into the all-important construction process vital to Beer’s work: a practice that explores all that painting encompasses, paint’s properties as a substance and different ways of mixing and layering paint and colours. Beer’s paintings question the place of abstract painting in contemporary art, and contribute much to this ongoing dialogue.
