Lazy Racer is an exhibition of highly individual images. Hooper builds his images on chance-based drawing systems. A rigorous editing process of overpainting, erasure and addition, brings together various signs and configurations into precise visual relationships. Each painting is worked until it develops an internal logic and possesses its own formal complexity. The experience for the viewer is as uncharted as Hooper’s approach. We roam through his amalgam of sources and freely speculate. Hooper steers a course that passes close to contemporary abstraction, traditional painting territories, endgame whirlpools and personal recollection, to discover images that are new and surprising.
