Join Walker Art Gallery for this talk with 2023 Prize winner Emily Kraus in front of her painting ‘Stochastic 14’.
“I work inside a cubic scaffold structure around which I stretch a canvas loop. It is a shelter, a constraint, a tabernacle and a boundary. The mechanism itself — rolling bars and canvas with no end — is a metaphor for the cyclical world. To create an organic image within a rigid system whose nature is to make repetitive marks requires listening, attention and rebellion.
“Using this apparatus is like painting with blinders on. I hold the memory of surrounding marks as I focus on what I can see, forcing my eyes to layer linear time like ears do when composing a musical score.”
Tickets for this talk are £5 and include entry to the exhibition.
