Latrobe Art Institute: spatial deconstruction no 19

Emma Coulter

19 - 23 Dec 2018

To acknowledge that two-dimensional pictures rendered on surfaces of canvas and board are something more than planar images.  After all, materials required to produce a painting are three-dimensional liquids, cloths, timbers and powders.  So it’s fair to make a case that paintings are sculptural objects to some extent.  They are not sculptures, but they are in some sense sculptural.

Support Structure assembles the work of artists who paint in a sculptural way.  Acknowledging the physicality of paintings these artists produce artwork that blurs the boundary between media and offers ways of rethinking the nature of contemporary painting.
