Statement

Taryn Coulson's geometric paintings are inspired by the constant sensory overload we are faced with daily, and the inevitable erosion of image through technological reproduction. Her work engages with the idea of repeating a calculated action and the inconsistencies and degradation that result as the act is performed again and again.

Each painting begins highly structured as a way of mimicking aspects of technological
reproduction and image compression. Through the continual process of addition and
subtraction, the layers of paint in repeated colours and techniques unfold on the canvas, resulting in a hard-edged pattern that is contrasted by the performative action of its making and the unpredictable nature of oil paint.
