Louise Neiland: Calibration

16 February - 10 March 2018

'Calibration' can be defined as the action or process of measuring the relationship between two quantities that may, or may not, be known. The unknown quantity in these paintings is the amount of time given to an event, or even the amount of time between events. The images work in layers, using time as a measuring device to explain each of these.

The paintings describe a series of happenings - some aspects of which are real, and others fictional. The characters and elements portray tangible positions in time and space, and from those positions one can calibrate each individual world. Outside the images these worlds couldn't exist. Each presents its own space, which is a place where different times can exist.
