Mary Ramsden-‘swipe’ Pilar Corrias – London
Mary Ramsden makes paintings that allude to the accidental smudges and ‘painterly’ marks left after using the touch-screen of a mobile phone or tablet. Exploring how painting may operate within today’s digital framework, she highlights our sense of the visual world through the slippery surface of the technological lens. The paintings are displayed in clusters similar to windows opened simultaneously on a computer screen. Tate Britain exhibition- Vanilla and concrete-art now.
