GATESHEAD.- BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art presents RIFF/T at BALTIC’s project space at BALTIC 39 Newcastle upon Tyne.

RIFF/T is a two part exhibition about painting, abstraction, representation and their respective expanded fields. Divided into two sequential parts, the works presented focus upon the opposing themes of the harmonious RIFF, and discordant RIFT. Utilising a range of media that reference, mimic and push both ideas integral to painting, and the processes of painting itself, RIFF/T seeks to highlight trends, facets and approaches particular to the medium, now.

RIFF explores a sense of fluency and unity found in abstraction. Within the works in the exhibition, rhythm and abstraction converge in a choir of repeating marks, stock images, signature forms and colours. The exhibition installation seeks to evoke a holistic RIFF, a curatorial orchestration in which the individual signatures and marks echo and repeat between the works on show.

Amidst traces of the previous exhibition RIFT amplifies a sense of rupture and re-composition. Highlighting processes of vandalism and corruption within the works on show, RIFT gives credence to error, accident and chance. Referencing art history and popular culture, altering imagery and changing surface details, the idea of representation is opened up to new abstracted possibilities.

RIFF/T is curated by Matthew Hearn, Thomas Whittle and Sebastian Trend.
