Paint Moves – Elizabeth Archbold

Elizabeth Archbold

RHA Ashford Gallery
9 Sep, 2022 - 9 Oct, 2022

An exhibition of abstract paintings that are made through experimentation with multiple approaches to painting. There is an intuitive use of paint's inherent properties of flow, splatter, bulk, matt, sheen, splodge, with colour used in combinations and contrasts of a reduced palette.

The works on display in Paint Moves have inspirations in nature, found objects, evolution of painting processes, ornamental pattern, and everyday occurrences and involves a consideration of this flow of inspirations.

Processes involve a phenomenological, self-reflexive index in paint, that carries an awareness of the moment and questions the activity of painting and the communication of meaning. Paint Moves experiments with ways in which painting can engage the viewer and addresses the experience the viewer has when looking at the painting.
