Al Munro: Disturbing the grid - Art Collector

Al Munro, ‘Disturbed Grid - orange grey’, 2018. Acrylic on birch panel, 20 x 20cm. Courtesy: the artist and MAY SPACE, Waterloo.

  Drawing on Al Munro’s interest in the intersections of textile patterning and mathematics, this exhibition focuses on the systems and logic of woven textiles and how these might relate to painted abstraction. The work explores the relationship of simple weave structures – warp and weft – and patterns – ginghams, plaids, checks – to abstraction, and to locate an ongoing relevance for textile histories and practices to be seen as part of the expanded field of painting. The work also draws on Munro’s recent residency at Chiang Mai University, Thailand, where she researched the local vernacular woven textiles call pa kao ma.

Exhibition opens: 3-5pm Saturday 27 October 2018

Exhibition closes: 10 November 2018
