Making Matters

Andy Parkinson reviews Making Matters at Platform A Gallery, on view through November 20, 2014. The show features works by Andrew Bick, Katrina Blannin, Clem Crosby, David Ryan, Francesca Simon and Kate Terry.

Considering the works on view, Parkinson writes: "I am thinking, perhaps, of a distinction between craft and construction, with the latter being uppermost, even whilst there is plenty of craft in evidence here. There are also other distinctions to be made; for example, ‘making paintings’ as opposed to ‘painting pictures’ (the other artists represented here being painters). Making matters a lot more than, say, representation. The works in this exhibition, whether two- or three-dimensional, are autonomous constructions; abstractions, in that they address process over content, rather than in the sense of ‘abstracting from’ observational descriptions."
