Curated by Mark Wright and Stuart Mackenzie in collaboration with &Model, this exhibition of contemporary painting is a follow-up to our 2013 project, Dirty Pop, also curated by Mark Wright. An illustrated catalogue with text by Derek Horton will be published to accompany the exhibition.

The artists in Surface To Air, different though they are, all share a focused engagement with the craft and material values relevant to painting. Materiality and the way it is articulated through surface and the physical handling of paint is central to an understanding of each artist’s practice.

In the newly published book Materiality (Whitechapel/MIT, 2015) Petra Lange-Berndt has written that: ‘Materiality, is one of the most contested concepts in contemporary art and is often sidelined in critical academic writing.’ However, writing about painting both within an analytic and continental philosophical tradition, Wollheim, Foucault, Merleau-Ponty, Crowther, Elkins, Deleuze and Isabelle Graw among many, have often addressed the significance of materiality in all its complexity from the perspectives of both artist and viewer. Foucault argued in The Archaeology of Knowledge (1969) that: ‘Painting is a discursive practice that is embodied in techniques and effect.’ These techniques and effects present themselves as the rudiments of all painted images: marks, lines, traces, edges and outlines.

The paintings in Surface To Air use diverse imagery to address aspects of representation, including depiction and realism as well as abstraction. They have evolved not only through specific working processes but from diverse influences and source material. This includes direct observational drawing and the use of mediated images as the starting point for painting and reflects an awareness of legacies and traditions from Minimalism to Neo-Romanticism.

From a curatorial perspective, the selection and juxtaposition of such diverse paintings highlights their autographic nature in the range and diversity of their technique and imagery, and one is made aware of how their particular concerns are articulated through form. It defines the implicit representational aspects of the works and also alludes to temporality, either demonstrated through the deployment of imagery or embodied within the physical production of the paintings.

Painting is unlike any other medium and perhaps one of the most challenging for the practitioner. One can circumnavigate a sculpture, gauge understanding and intent through the choice of material and relationship with its given space, whereas painting is a slippery being, demanding a different kind of attention from both artist and viewer. The articulation of paint to surface can manifest as a performative experience, but equally take the form of narrative references both to art historical appropriations, contemporary observations and personal histories. Painting comes with an inbuilt language of its own as well as a visual immediacy, and it is in this forensic dissection of the possibilities of painting that these 12 artists excel.

RIFF/T - BALTIC 39

BALTIC's Project Space, BALTIC39

December 12, 2013 – January 19, 2014.

RIFF is a painting exhibition that explores a sense of fluency and unity found in abstraction. Rhythm and abstraction converge in a choir of repeating marks, stock images, signature forms and colours. The exhibition installation seeks to evoke a holistic riff, a curatorial orchestration in which individual signatures and marks echo and repeat between the works on show.

RIFF includes works by: Tom and Simon Bloor, Fiona Curran, Daniel Eatock, Steven Emmanuel, Johannes Evers, Nadine Feinson, Tommy Grace & Kate Owens, Albert Irvin, ISLET, Peter Lamb, Andrew Maughan, Paul Merrick, Ewan Jones Morris, Flore Nove-Josserand, Ciara Phillips, Mike Pratt, David Sherry, Adam Shield and Thomas Whittle

RIFF culminates in a night of live performances by artist David Sherry, and by four-piece band ISLET with long time collaborator Ewan Jones Morris.

RIFF is curated by Matthew Hearn in collaboration with Thomas Whittle.

RIFF is part of RIFF/T, a two-part exhibition that explores and attempts to evaluate the current state of painting, through an investigation into abstraction and representation. Divided into sequential parts, a focus is placed upon the opposing themes of the harmonious riff and the discordant rift. The exhibition posits that contemporary painterly practice has moved beyond the canvas and incorporates a wide range of media from installation to video, all the while referencing, mimicking and pushing ideas integral to painting itself. RIFF/T seeks to highlight trends, facets and approaches particular to painting, today.

Part two of the exhibition, RIFT, curated by Matthew Hearn in collaboration with Sebastian Trend, runs January 22 – March 2, 2014.

BALTIC 39 - Riff/t

A group exhibition about painting, abstraction and representation
11 DECEMBER 2013 - 2 MARCH 2014
RIFF/T is a group exhibition about painting, abstraction and representation. Divided into two sequential exhibitions, the component parts respectively focus upon the themes of the harmonious RIFF, and the discordant RIFT. Utilising a range of media that references, mimics and pushes both themes specific to painting, and the processes of painting itself, RIFF/T seeks to highlight particular trends, facets and approaches that are important to the medium, now.

Curated by The Hang Gang.

BALTIC 39 is the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art's Project Space
BALTIC 39, 31–39 High Bridge, Newcastle upon-Tyne NE1 1EW / FREE ADMISSION
