Nudge – New Work by Renée Van Halm

PrintNudge can be seen as an encouragement to look, to move in closer, to move over just a bit, on the part of the viewer but also refers to the process of making a painting. For instance the choices an artist makes when introducing a colour or shape and moving them until around till the composition clicks into place. The process of making the collages and subsequently  paintings involve nudging the shapes over to find the optimal position in an ideal but edgy relationship.

This exhibition at the Equinox Gallery opens on February 13, 2016
