Mary Ramsden: (In / It)

Nov 4, 2016-Feb 19, 2017
For her first solo museum exhibition, British artist Mary Ramsden presents a new series of paintings arranged in groupings that investigate associations between scale, imagery, and space. Expanding on her interest in prose, social media, and our daily interface with technology, Ramsden’s painterly, gestural marks echo the physical residue left when swiping the touch screen of a tablet or smart phone. Within this, the artist examines the playful zone between the painter’s mark and the accidental smears of our screen-based world. Setting these urgent scorings among seemingly fixed geometric planes, Ramsden alludes to our pervasive relationship with the screen in daily life.

AAM exhibitions are made possible by the Marx Exhibition Fund. General exhibition support is provided by the Toby Devan Lewis Visiting Artist Fund.

Mary Ramsden’s (In / It) is funded in part by the AAM National Council.
