SUM – a painting exhibition by Sarah Woodburn
Private View: Friday 18th May 2018, 7-9pm

A solo exhibition of new works by Sarah Woodburn, winner of the Bankley Open Call 2017.
“…I peel and portion a tangerine and spit the pips and feel the drunkenness of things being various.” (Louis MacNeice)
Inspired by unprimed empty canvas and tubes of fresh paint, SUM is a culmination of paintings made over the last two years.
Each work is started in much the same way – seeking out the ‘perfect’ surface by covering imperfections left behind from stretching raw canvas on a studio floor, with paint. Whilst many of the marks, gestures and l...ines have an accidental and whimsical quality to them, as a whole they work together with confidence and purpose.
Every decision, from start to finish, feels like a compositional balancing act. Each action informs the next, dictating the direction, mood and tempo of the work. Painting, if you like, as a game of chess.
Consistency within this group of paintings lies behind the medium and the decision making process, yet the outcome is always unpredictable.
Sarah Woodburn (b. Chertsey 1982) undertook a Foundation diploma at Wimbledon School of Art (2001-2002) and graduated in Fine Art at Newcastle University (2002-2006). She lives and works in London.
