Breathless
Robyn Laba
March 23 — April 20, 2002

Curated by Reid Shier

Robyn Laba’s technique involves the time consuming practice of tying thousands of uninflated latex balloons onto wire mesh grid. The effect is luminous and fantastically tactile, while remaining subtly monochromatic. Referring as much to the high modernist practice of colour field painting as it does to textile practices such as tapestry and weaving, Laba has created a method of “painting” which raises a number of allusions to gender specific techniques. These “paintings”, however, reach beyond specific historical references to create a wholly new and vividly evocative picture making technique.
