    About The Work

    Gabriella Boyd’s lithograph, just as in her abstract and figurative paintings, invites us to draw connections between forms, symbols and brush marks.

    Boyd’s edition, entitled Solution, portrays two figures seeping into their surroundings. The room, bathed in yellow liquid or evening light, takes on an anatomical glow which dissolves body and space. Boyd’s paintings often depict relationships between characters that seem to oscillate between generous acts and refusal or violence. Are we observing the administering of holistic care or combat, dance or ritual? 

    This soft liquid room is punctured by three dark scored marks; a cane or instrument on the table, a belt and a doorway. These objects cut through the pictorial space, whether symbolic violent acts or solid forms, keeping the scene from the point of disintegration.

    The process of lithography demands a particular focus on layering of imagery and colour, where layers can accumulatively build or disrupt the narrative.
