DESCRIPTION

Blind Scribbles is an exciting and luminous new series of paintings by Françoise Sullivan which continues to explore the gestural abstraction for which she is renowned.

Sullivan’s new series of lush paintings revisit automatism in a way which reveals its current relevance. Making a mark or “scribble” with her eyes closed, she builds a painting, filling the canvas with shimmering colours. This is akin “to Borduas saying I make a mark and from there I make a painting” she states. Taken together, the new works visually build upon each other in much the same way that musical notes create a symphony.

Each work is, however, individual in its approach. Although the paintings at first glance imply three-dimensionality, they are two luminous fields, one in front of the other. The gestures soar weightlessly over pulsating colour to embrace the viewer.
