It’s for me, it’s for you was a two person exhibition that presented sculptures by Karen Tang alongside some of my paintings. We produced these new pieces independently, discovering by chance during the making process that shared influences existed. The Undivided Attention paintings depict interiors, doubling as geometric abstract patterns. These ambiguous territories act as containers within which, a group of characters, or performers, are choreographed. Sundry domestic items are recast as two-dimensional screens onto which different forms of modernist inspired painterly languages appear projected. Quoting from a plethora of different painterly fine art references, the set-ups present fractured moments of what might be seen as heroic modernist painterly gestures, fossilised within a series of domestic framing devices.
