Susie Dureau | I am NOT an individual

September 5, 2020, 10:00 am - October 11, 2020, 4:00 pm

2020 has been the most extraordinary year. We were blindsided by the tiniest of organisms – a virus. The pandemic environment that we are now living in has refocused our attention on the significance of the world outside our human systems. This body of work is my response to Covid-19. It is an investigation of my shared materiality with the non-human world.

The paintings evolve in a balance between spontaneous gesture and carefully considered judgements – my previous landscape work offers a way to navigate the shapes and indeed there is a kind of plotting and mapping that occurs within the works. The landscapes are familiar yet unrecognisable. They might be the contours of coastlines or land masses seen from above, the map of a path or the outline of an organism. In fact, the shapes are taken from negative spaces in previous paintings. The way these paintings come about is through a process of recycling, remaking, adapting. Human and non-human bodies weigh in on each other, measuring and affecting the next thing, like the transmission of a virus. The paintings speak to an interweaving of human construction and the flow of a complex network of non-human actors.
