Lorna Grear, 2012

"Stacked, packed to the rafters, jammed full of stuff. In Lorna Grear’s new body of work surprising effects happen from the stacked paintings. Recycled, found plywood is used as grounds; painted and stacked to cause deeper spaces. Shadows move within the works. Meaning is inherent. Silhouettes are painted on tourist stencil templates of Australian fauna; possums, platypus and kangaroos. Once discarded, used now. The piles of plywood make the issue of space real: 3D. The viewer can travel into them.” - http://lornagrear.com/category/curated-projects/ Whitepop and Woodmix are part of Grear’s ongoing inquiry into collage, 3D painting and patterning.
