Emma McIntyre’s paintings in Rose on Red, continue a material experimentation with perspective and depth in non-figurative space. The structure and concept of the grid guides this process, opening up interstices in lineages of representational and abstract painting.

Sometimes the grid is a real effect of the surface, paint applied over a square nylon mesh. Other times the grid is a barely discernible impression. But always, like the Gertrude Stein poem from which the exhibition title is drawn, materials serve a textural purpose that does not directly body forth singular meaning, but places momentum in previously undiscerned regions.
