• TEN HOURS BY TRAIN | Galina Munroe, Rachael McCully & Olivier Vrancken

  • Ten Hours By Train consists 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 artists are abstract painters whose paintings lean towards geometric minimalism imbued with textural and tonal nuance.


    British-French artist Galina Munroe's work embodies her 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 and abstract expressionism, 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 focus is the quest to create harmonious compositions through colour and form. Obsessed with the element of balance, McCully is guided by intuition and sheer enjoyment. The final result is an ongoing series of paintings that McCully recognises as a visual relief, minimal in appearance and calm in energy.
