Von Lintel Gallery : Kate Petley : Chances Are


Von Lintel Gallery presents Chances Are, its second solo exhibition of abstract artist Kate Petley.

Petley’s debut at Von Lintel’s came at a time of great global change in 2020: a fitting coincidence given the theme of transformation is integral to her work. Her image-making process involves assembling sculptures from quotidian materials – cardboard, tape, paper, film and “stuff out of the trash” – before selectively applying paint to these makeshift objects. They are then photographed, with Petley manipulating lighting, scale, and layers of colored gels until she achieves her desired effect. The subsequent images defy description. Elevated to mythical proportions, her sculptural forms become luminous topographies: distinct from and obscured by overlapping geometries and finely gradated fields of color.
