The Summer-Show
The Sunday Painter, London
28 June – 26 July 2019

Tyra Tingleff’s paintings twist and squeeze the abstract language of the medium. By deploying familiar techniques, including dripping, spraying, staining and scrubbing, her works alight – but never settle – upon a range of reference points, and her surfaces remain ever restless. Built up through layers and layers of application, a cross-section of traditions are acknowledged and hinted at within the canvas yet ultimately refuted as she strives for an absence of language.
