Workplace Gallery are delighted to present a solo stand of new painting and sculpture by Jennifer Douglas at The Manchester Contemporary 2014.
As part of her recent solo exhition at Workplace Gallery Gateshead Douglas presented a single painting entitled If walls had eyes. The 60 x 42 cm painting on canvas was painted blue and repeatedly punctured with mutiple screw holes and Rawl plugs. Referencing both the Buchi and Tagli (holes and slashes) of Lucio Fontana's paintings and the romantic escape of the dusk sky this work more specifically referred to a battered old industrial breeze block wall that has been recurrently over-painted and drilled into without consideration for aesthetics or meaning. If walls had eyes prompted an entirely new body of work presented for the first time in Manchester.
