4me4you visits FOLD Gallery, which showcased “ON EMPTINESS” by: Patrick Lundberg & Oliver Perkins.
FOLD Gallery..>The exhibition seeks to develop a conversation between two series or rather two categories of work by artists Patrick Lundberg and Oliver Perkins. Lundberg’s ‘Sets’ and Perkins’ ‘string and dowel works‘. The affiliation between these bodies of work lies broadly in both artist’s co-habitation of a position in painting that seeks to circumvent representation and more precisely, in closely calibrated attempts, to invoke the world through perceptual experience.
The means for achieving this, arrived at independently in both bodies of work, is to compose with emptiness. A paradigm in which the works operate with reduced material components in order to put emphasis very firmly on the structuring of negative space.
