23 October - 11 November 2012
Opening Tuesday 23 October, 6-8pm
Lena Torikov returns to Tacit Contemporary Art with an exhibition that continues to explore the possibility of tension and space within a three dimensional surface. Although Lena Torikov is trained as a painter, her current work replaces traditional subject matter and colour with an abstract composition of white shapes.
Foamcore has replaced linen: brushes have been exchanged for a sharp knife. Without the distraction of colour variation, dependence on the replication of identified forms, her art is playing with the mathematics of form, spaces and the relationship between these.
Circumferences is an exhibition of works experimenting with surfaces, geometrical patterning and three-dimensional structures of straight lines to suggest and create circularity and rounded voids.
