Estelle Thompson: Fuse Paintings 1996-98
A Mead Gallery Touring Exhibition
Sat 25 Apr – Mon 25 May 1998
This exhibition features new, large-scale paintings by Estelle Thompson. In three enormous canvases, each measuring 7 × 14 feet, the artist has developed her use of abstract light, colour and space into systems of repeated stripes that fuse colour to produce a powerful optical vibration. Smaller canvases are shown in a more enclosed space within the Gallery. The extremes of scale evoke different visual and physical sensations as the viewer moves towards across and in front of the paintings.
