Veronika Desova: I see your voice, there was a silence at the Alchemy Experiment in Glasgow features overexposed, out of focus photographs and multi-media paintings which depart from the explicitly-defined or ‘perfect’ figurative image and sit somewhere between figuration and abstraction. Playful experiments, they blur the line between painting and photography.

Representation of the female body in movement remains a constant thread through all the works, expressed more explicitly in the photographs, while the satin paintings reveal a more elusive and metaphysical presence. Both media illustrate the fine balance between control and chance, as the low shutter speed and diluted ink staining patterns introduce a degree of unpredictability.
