Artists’ statement: No Dress Rehearsal
– this show of paintings is dedicated to Julia and Anna Hamilton, and Liam Redden. (in the words of The Hip: “no dress rehearsal/this is our life”. With love.)
“At the end of representation, the possibility of evocation remains. In the mystery of the non-predetermined painting process, the abstract artist strives to reveal the emotional underpinnings of the known.
Colour choice and disposition, balance (or the not-quite-balanced)… line and light and strength of statement are meant to create an environment which is without definition, but which is able to be understood intuitively and emotionally.
We offer this work to your eye and heart and the half-light of our shared being. All interpretation is correct if it resonates with the viewer.
Our success as makers is shared with – and depends upon – you, through our relationality around the common experience of the paintings. We hope you enjoy and accept whatever moment arises through your seeing.”
– Corinne and Mark
