Tricia Gillman - Moment Fields
Tricia Gillman and Benjamin Rhodes have a historic exhibiting partnership with Gillman, having exhibited with Benjamin Rhodes through the late 1980s and early 1990s.
In the exhibition, Gillman continues her exploration of recording the moment-to-moment experience of thinking, sensing, feeling and remembering while documenting as directly as possible the viewer’s conscious awareness as each present moment emerges, focuses and melts away. Through her chosen materials of graphite, charcoal, pastel and collage, she creates layers that evolve through touch, scribble, dustings of pigment, words, images and erasures that construct and deconstruct the canvas.
Gillman says of her work, “The space of the painting becomes a mapping site, the raw canvas accrues evidence, like the way a tablecloth, a sheet, or a wall collects stains or the skin we live in rides its years……..Materials and processes are chosen to set up a kind butterfly net that scoops up the passing moment as directly and openly as possible….”
