London Group member Erika Winstone is part of this group exhibition featuring Ken Kiff and other international artists.
Erika Winstone makes paintings informed by a drawing practice and gestural video to filter how individuals relate across different generations, mixing both personal and fictional experience. Her marks transitively capture and combine the music, actions and communications of others in a practice that includes performance, film and the medieval process of drawing with metal point. The text in her paintings for example; I’m Not There act as signage to her original drawing source- a film about Bob Dylan which she orchestrated with footage of her daughter. Winstone’s process of painting and excavating letters on wood relates to a teenage experience when her father’s name appeared in paint shortly after he died. However, it also doubles as a signifier, alluding to the sometime, difficult relationship between who we are, and who we would like to be.
