In this exhibition, Morag Stokes brings together a collection of her paintings and digitally manipulated photographic work. Her paintings fall into two main categories - 'drag' and 'text' paintings, accorging to the different processes involved. Essentially abstract works, they have in common the removal of wet paint from a surface resulting in work which is developed from the residues of paint left behind - a kind of 'unpainting'.
In the case of the text paintings, words or phrases are scooped out of layers of paint until they have no literal meaning. They are transformed into complex surface patterns unique to the words used. With the drag paintings, applied paint is dragged over a variety of surfaces resulting in works which often rely on linear relationships.
Digitally manipulated photographic works also feature in this exhibition, further emphasising Morag's interests in patern generation.
