"Between the Lines": Ian Davenport @ Art Plural Gallery, Singapore

July 04, 2012

Ian Davenport's "Puddle Paintings" currently on view at Art Plural Gallery engage in controlled experiments. Balancing between chance and intent, the works are a direct reflection upon the materiality of the paint and the process of creating the finished panels. Davenport uses industrial syringes to pour the many vibrant yet harmonious acrylic pigments over the aluminum surfaces, modulating the angle to alter the paint's descent, creating ordered vertical lines that bleed into disordered mixtures of varying hues that reveal the artist's process, one which carefully arranges a calculated outcome that simultaneously embraces the medium's inherent movement. Davenport's works will be on view until July 7th.
