STASIS
ALIZON GRAY

Within this body of work I am exploring the notion of Stasis through an abstract investigation into the materiality and substance of paint which drips, dribbles and runs over the underlying structures before arresting in its flow.
Although the organic nature of this process may seem ungovernable, the paint takes on a force through carefully regarded manipulation and motive in specific medium choice and application.
There is a tension created between the fluidity of paint, the random reaction of its viscosity, gravitational pull, and the rigor by which I am considering and appropriating these techniques within the paradigm of ‘traditional’ painting, creating a flux between the substance and material properties of paint and the forms that are created out of process.
