Moyra Derby - Notes on Painting

Moyra Derby exhibits in group show Notes on Painting

Notes on Painting at Koppel Project Hive, London, examines painting’s materiality in relation to every day experience. It focuses painting in terms of the diagrammatic and provisional.

Notes on Painting asks how can the texture of everyday life, its ever changing pace and rhythm, be embodied through the materiality of an artwork?

This is addressed through installation, text, diagrams, painting, photography and moving image. The works represented economise and dispense with the formal definition of ‘painting’, questioning its construction and modes of making. Translated through various material manipulations, the exhibition urges us to consider that painting requires actual experience.
