|Featured Artist Dermot Punnett at Gallery NuEdge|
Artist's Statement: “My work oscillates between painting as image and painting as a material process. I'm concerned with the tension that exists between the illusion and the surface. Working from personal photography and found images, I utilise the effects of reproduction and pixilation on a painterly aesthetic. I start by painting the image in a representational manner, then apply dragging techniques, pushing and pulling the paint and causing ruptures in the image. Within this I use geometrical abstractions, playing on a sense of entropy and order; the impermanence of form, but also the crystalline nature of its emergence. Through this process I try to understand and internalise perception and experience, whilst reflecting on a sense of modern day anxiety.” — Read more: Axis Web-Dermot Punnett
