Statement

Goncharov's continued research into drawing and painting explores methods to reduce and extend selected elements of readymade visual language beyond their primary function. His focus is an engagement with open-ended narrative structures, through the juxtaposition of disparate yet specific imagery and painterly techniques. Potential narrative structure is opened up in the painting, whilst simultaneously closed down or limited by inclusion of graphic language and text. The accumulated languages belonging to both texts and particular types of imagery (gestural mark or sampled graphic) are used to negate each other, in an attempt to offer transcendence from their particular associated or accumulated histories.
