Michaela Zimmer’s paintings spring from spontaneous interactions. First, her body interacts with her tools in the almost-involuntary creative impulse of action painting, which she executes in spray paint, acrylics, permanent marker and lacquer. Then this action interacts with the canvas as her gestures create unexpected forms. Finally, a sheet of polyethylene film is placed over the canvas. In part arranged and in part self-arranging, its own material properties dictate the way it stretches and falls, and how it overlays and changes the colours and forms underneath.
In the process of rearrangement, the sheet of magenta in 150404 has picked up some of the black paint from the canvas, further complicating Zimmer’s layering technique. The work not only shows a current interaction between its materials, but also contains traces of previous configurations, thrusting the artistic process into the spotlight.
