DESCRIPTION

Featuring Melinda Laszczynski and Jessica Ninci, This End Up focuses on the orientation and arrangement of non-representational works within a specific space and the nuances of installation. Both artists possess a strong interest in materiality, the object-like qualities in painting and the seemingly banal. Laszczynski collects various discarded materials such as wood and glass that are manipulated through both negative and additive processes. The results are fragile or precarious assemblages that reference painting. Ninci’s work explores abstraction in painting and situates itself between formalism and a kind of casualness – in that the marks appear facile yet specific. In the display and installation of the works, thoughtfully mundane associations are made with the architectural space and between the works themselves.
