Painting in Another Dimension

Megan Wyatt

28 June 2014 - 27 August 2014

Focusing on the potential of contemporary painting, Chester-based artist, Megan Wyatt looks at the medium’s associated formal mechanisms, conventions and existence both historically and in contemporary practice.

 

Working traditionally with raw pigments, Wyatt systematically attempts to control colour, the opacity of the paint and its appearance when applied onto different materials (in this instance layers of acetate). Responding to and integrating the work with the architecture of the space, she applies loops of painted and layered acetate to form compositions free of the convention of the frame and the two dimensional surface. The quality and aspect of light, as it shifts through the day, both informs and completes the work according to its situation.

Megan was mentored by Oriel Davies as part of the Axis initiative Out and Beyond from 2012-2013 and is currently undertaking a practice-led PhD at Glyndwr University.
