Wednesday November 15 to Saturday December 2, 2017
Melanie Roger Gallery, Auckland
Folding, shifting and overlapping- geometric inhabitants of indefinite scale drift and dwell in pale spaces. Expanding hexagons, tilting stripes, crystal-like structures and even harlequin patterns are carefully painted by this subtle yet accomplished painter and realised in her refined and precise style. Parallelograms permute, hexagons slowly solidify and bands of colour are repeated. Patterns and constructions are formed from small shapes, areas of colour, voids and traces. Like secret signals, shards march upright and flag-forms drop, creating a language of mathematical semaphores. Gently adding, sometimes subtracting colour, Gorman’s paintings are lightly layered and layered again.
