FAKTURA (FOR A NERVOUS SPIRIT)

Merlin Carpenter
Kim? Contemporary Art Centre, Riga, Latvia
4 September – 1 November 2020

Merlin Carpenter’s “Paint-It-Yourself” display is to be seen as a systematic production and delectation of the materiality of a surface liberated from representation. It suggests that the tension of the painting process is already present when all is on view are eight primed canvases and a box placed in the middle of the room full of ready-to-use oil paint tubes.
