Following her participation in Deptford X Fringe last Autumn, Madi Acharya-Baskerville returns to Vinyl Deptford with a solo exhibition of new works.
Absent Beach presents a collection of new paintings developed over the last two years. The works refer to a sense of loss, a nostalgia for lost origins, but simultaneously hint at new beginnings - discovering new places some of which are within our imagination, collaged from experiences rather than a product of stark reality.
The found surface itself has a past: marked, textured, battered, worn out; hence marking time whilst the irregular edges suggest a continuity beyond what can be viewed. The hidden depths within our oceans, the mysteriousness of what lies beneath the surface is ever present in Absent Beach.
