Rearranging Curves at the Arts Library Gallery has been extended until Saturday 11th February.
The solo exhibition is showing a series of brand new paintings which convey the experience of place, absorbed and distilled.
The curved line arrangements are based upon quick drawings of forms observed in the landscape, which Ansell records in a notebook or on loose sheets of paper. These line drawings are then re-organised to fit a desired composition and contribute to a process of over painting which can sometimes involve many layers. Their final placement is determined through a rehearsal which has sensitivity for the existing surface detail; so some areas of the painting are deliberately left to reveal something, whilst other areas, are over painted and concealed.
The gallery is open Monday to Friday: 10am – 8pm, Saturday 10am – 5pm, Sunday closed.
