Louise McRae - Painting
Louise McRae’s sculptural, wall-based assemblages bring discarded building materials and the debris of her rural environment into new frames of reference. McRae’s practice involves painting upon scrap timber which she then splits into shards and reassembles into matrixes of varying shapes and formats. Though the physical labour involved in making these works is undeniable, the works also have a quality of self-generation: shards congregate and tessellate as though they have floated into their respective positions. The works swell with movement and colour.
