Malerei: Painting as Object

Helen Baker-Alder

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


Malerei: Painting As Object investigates painting as a process, its guises and paint as a substance. Each artist shares a love of material and the qualities of their ‘thing-ness’, whether it’s colour, oozing oil paint, balloons, cellophane or jesmonite. The artists however do not remain slavish to the visceral but also embody and appropriate particular areas of Paintings’ history in their multidisciplinary practices. Malerei: Painting As Object will reveal a painterly investigation of the Modernist concern ‘objecthood’, Postmodern eclecticism and the Post-production – trend of continuous re-working. Exhibition featured in Garageland Magazine and Corridor8 magazine.
