This month Zimmerman Art Gallery is featuring selected paintings from Rebecca Wallis’ new "Scratchings" series. Among the works featured is "armswipe", a touring finalist in the recent Wallace Art Awards.

Artist’s commentary on the Scratchings series:
“In constructing these works I’ve considered a formal equality where each and every part of the painting is visually acknowledged, where the unseen becomes seen.

The works refer to ideas about the accident or incident from which stems their titles - an acknowledgement of the process of the making itself.

They can be seen as a documentation of accidents, those moments that are unaccounted for, those gaps between intention and purposefulness that happen naturally no matter how much control we attempt to maintain within the practice as an artist.

Unlike traditional paintings, the back, sides, stretcher bars, edges and front - as well as every point of the creative act from start to finish - are equally significant and integral to appreciating the work as a whole.

Everything is equal, nothing is prioritised, no moment is ignored.”

The exhibition of Rebecca Wallis’ paintings at Zimmerman Art Gallery runs for the month of June 2016.
