For several years, Julia Dault has created abstract paintings and sculptures that reveal the processes of their own creation. In this exhibition, she continues this exploration of artistic labor, in part through constraining, repeating, or mechanically reproducing her gestures.
One unifying element is Dault’s fascination with patterns, and with the slippages and imperfections that reveal the human origins of what appears mechanical. Another is the search for variety within strict limitations. By devising expressive gestures through rules and reasoning indicative of post-minimal and Conceptual art, Dault is part of a generation of artists revitalizing abstract painting today.
