Opening Event Thursday July 12, from 6pm
Hopkinson Mossman, Wellington
Hopkinson Mossman is pleased to present Rose on red, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Emma McIntyre.
In Rose on red, paintings again feature grid structures (lattices, harlequin, chequerboard etc.) as an orientating and destabilising force. In some works, mesh is embedded into the painting’s base, creating a tight grid, its raised lines inversions of the scratched-in topmost grid. In other works, layers of larger loose grids create a sense of depth, opening up interstices in which lyrical swathes of colour conceal small impressions of a flower stamp, or scratches of fingernails.
