Raewyn Martyn’s residency takes the form of a working studio set up around the investigation of how abstract paint-based interventions and wall works operate in public space, both on-site and outside of a public gallery setting. The working studio will research recent related practice and present these findings in the form of a reading table in the gallery, a blog, and studio work.
The residency will result in a series of wall-works realised in offsite public space during April 2011. They will investigate how abstract painterly activity within public space can activate surfaces and engage with the lived visual experience of the space. Working drawings show use of found frames within exterior architecture, and surfaces. Potential sites include exterior walls, and walls and surfaces within spaces used for hospitality or other forms of exchange.
