JD Malat Gallery is pleased to present the pop-up solo exhibition Eyes Closed, Wide Open by Georgia Dymock in New York, open from 7th June - 30th June 2022. After a tremendously successful sell-out solo show at JD Malat Gallery in London earlier this year, the exhibition will feature an entirely new body of work featuring joyously plump shape-shifting forms which examine society’s discussions on gender fluidity.
Eyes Closed, Wide Open includes ten new paintings which showcase Dymock’s signature style of curvy contorted figures. The canvases display an array of tubular figures, some adorned with sunglasses, others holding everyday objects such as straws and cubes or blowing bubbles. While her figures appear smooth and soft from afar, the viewer will encounter the immense texture upon close inspection of the painterly surface. This paradox between subject and surface is central to Dymock’s exploration of the constant push-pull relationship between our virtual and physical worlds:
“The normal nature and reality of a body is continuously brought into question in the online space. I am interested in the ‘imperfections’ that come through the labour of the process, where the paint gathers and hairs of the brush sit on the canvas.” – Georgia Dymock.
