Suzie Idiens' meditative new series quietly contests the boundaries between painting and object, surface and depth, colour and the monochrome. Each sculptural panel is layered in various tints of soft grey paint until an unblemished surfaced is attained. They gently occupy space and superficially achieve a lightness and neutrality that encourages their own invisibility. Upon closer looking, complexities emerge: shadows gather weight, colours deepen, and tones shift as you move around each piece. Idiens’ reductive investigations direct us towards the power of our perceptive capabilities, inviting us to see more in the most minimal of surfaces.
