Blueprint 12 presents In Between, a solo show by contemporary artist Kingsley Gunatillake. Kingsley’s expression is to visualize the moment prior to the confrontation of dual images of uncertainty and contradiction. His exercise is to use these images and structures, which take different modifications at times from hard and rough to soft and delicate. He lets this process take place either by effort or effortlessly; creating or controlling a situation rather than just responding to it after it has happened. With different textures that emerged from this process, paintings are conceived, projecting sexuality both due to fervent effort and by letting nature take its course. These works are a celebration of gestural abstraction, not intended to suit an overarching narrative and poised to be a reflection of art itself.
