PIERMARQ* is delighted to announce the group exhibition ‘Ten Hours by Train’ in collaboration with LUCI.D Interiors in Moss Vale this coming November. The exhibition will consist of paintings by Belgian born, Netherlands based Olivier Vrancken, alongside British Galina Munroe and Australian Rachael McCully, both of whom are currently based in Albi, Southern France. The exhibition title refers to the time it takes to catch the train from Breda, where Olivier is based, to Albi.
All three are abstract painters whose work leans towards geometric minimalism imbued with textural and tonal nuance.
British-French artist Galina Munroe's work is an earnest yet playful investigation of the formal principals of painting. Organic in her process, Munroe uses rich textures to toil with the idea of destruction and construction. Layering neatly collaged pieces of canvas, Munroe creates paintings that harness geometric compositions and reference the 'inbetween-ness' of architectural spaces.
Belgium born artist Oliver Vrancken’s abstract paintings are a dynamic display of large shapes, gestural marks and a muted pallet. Heavily influenced by late Modern art, Vrancken’s paintings are a harmonious exploration of failure and success. Through the reworking of acrylic paint, Vrancken both scrapes away and builds up various layers to create a beautiful illustration of intuition.
Rachael McCully’s primary conceptual focus is the quest to create harmonious compositions through colour and simple forms. Obsessed with the element of balance, McCully is guided by intuition and sheer enjoyment. The final result are paintings that McCully recognises as a visual relief; minimal in appearance and calm in energy.
‘Ten Hours by Train’ opens on Saturday 30th of November, 4-7pm and runs until the 7th of December at LUCI.D Interiors in Moss Vale, New South Wales.
