Canvas Works

Clementine Belle McIntosh’s exhibition Canvas Works disassembles the conventions of the stretched canvas to instigate rich conversations with place.
Based in Gilgandra NSW, home to the Wiradjuri, Kamilaroi and Wailwan traditional owners, McIntosh constructs performative situations in the landscape through acts of burying, shooting, soaking or suspending works. Her process-driven practice carries with it a consciousness of material and place, engaging natural fibres, repurposed fabrics, pigments and soil that hold a peaceful relationship with the natural environment.
