Lisa Patroni - Mostly Monochrome

My recent work is informed by the subversive tradition of European Monochrome
painting and explores its paradoxical nature. Stripping painting back to a bare
minimum reveals both the materiality and immateriality of painting simultaneously.
In its blankness, it slows down the way we look at painting, inviting a direct physical
response. This response allows for a painting to be perceived or sensed rather than
understood, in the same way light or a textured surface is sensed. What interests
me is that at the same time, the monochrome has the capacity to carry different
temporal knowledges, histories and political intentions.
