Through transforming and opening up the perceptual possibilities of a medium, Francesca Bleay creates abstract paintings that seek a deliberate tension between chaos and control that are rendered in acrylic paint.
By exploring painterly language that is informed by both contemporary and historic abstract painting, Bleay creates transcendent planes through layering a multitude of techniques that display her physical experience when painting. Each mark manifests into a reaction and response to another mark. Through this process, Bleay leaves the viewer attempting to reveal the beneath, behind and the beyond. Bleay positions colour in her paintings as a visual strategy that sits between abstraction and the viewer, allowing the viewer to access her painterly gestures through her carefully selected colour choices.
