The word scope is both a noun and a verb, as is painting, and as a concept it ranges from describing the possibilities which expand from the rudimentary genesis of pigment on ground, to the enquiring process of an individual translating thought to visual character. Scope expresses all of the flexible possibilities of a medium which has descended into various challenges and emerged, as a continued and rich source of formal and conceptual negotiation. Beyond that, scope the suffix refers to an instrument which makes visible the intangible, turning subjectivity into systems. Scope in this instance refers to a body of painted works from arts practitioners exploring the limitations and possibilities of painting through lived and imagined worlds of potential. - Curated By Anna Van Stralen.
