21 October – December 2017. Gallery Three. Rachael Clewlow creates rigorous and detailed recordings of her everyday movements.
Meticulously documenting this mass of information in diaries, this abstract record of the banal to the unexpected becomes a form of trace from which Clewlow begins to construct paintings and prints.
For her first solo exhibition, Clewlow has created a new series of paintings, presented in groups and focusing on a set of specific pre-defined walks in Rochdale, Newcastle and London. Each walk represents a performative journey made to explore place through the demands of the related paintings. Alternative and at times absurd, her ideas about exploring the world merge with her interest in exploring her own language of painting and abstraction.
