Stuck: Marie Mackay, Kiki Machado and Julia Miranda : Until 28 January 2012

Collage

London-based Brazilian artists Julia Miranda and Kiki Machado are joined by Marie Mackay for an exhibition showcasing their contrasting approaches to collage. Kiki’s compositions are harmonious, fresh and decorative; Julia is interested in juxtaposing beauty with humour; and Marie explores scale and landscape in her stunning ‘lense-based painting’. The artists have had previous exhibitions at venues renaging from London’s Mall Gallery to the Paço Imperial Museum of Modern Art in Rio de Janeiro.

15 December 2011 – 28 January 2012 (Mon-Fri 1-7pm; Sat & Sun 12-4pm)

The Original Gallery, Hornsey Library, Haringey Park, London N8 9JA

  • Julia Miranda’s collages are non conceptual. The direction is dictated by the feel and weight of paper, with contrasts or harmony of texture and tone. Meaning takes a back seat until the composition is complete.
  • Kiki Machado uses discarded materials such as old envelopes, sewing patterns and pages torn from books. She manipulates them into images with harmonizing tones, colours and shapes.
  • Marie Mackay’s source material is anything lens-based, anything printed. Occasionally she produces multiple images to build vistas from something hidden in the background of a photograph, perhaps.
