Anne Vieux : mesh

27 Apr 2017–27 May 2017

Overview

Annka Kultys is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by the New York-based artist, Anne Vieux, marking the artist’s first show with the gallery in London. Anne Vieux is interested in the optics of the computer screen, and its implications on the perception of abstract painting. This concern is translated in her paintings through visual reverberations springing from the mistranslation and slips of scale that come with digital reproductions of material surfaces. Images of holographic, translucent or gradient paper are captured and manipulated digitally via layers of warping and repetition, then printed on microfiber fabric. As a final manipulation, touches of airbrushed acrylic paint are added. This fusion of digital, photographic, and painterly procedures evokes but ultimately embraces the tension between physicality and intangibility.
