The speed of painting is of interest here, through the process of geometric abstract paintings, either in the con-struction or de-construction a pattern has occurred through the distortion of the grid, the square, through to the triangle and back and forth. Forming a speed and/or optical allusion, an infrastructure of spacial planes. Not dissimilar to maps, and not necessarily an architectural result, more about the spaces in-between.
Music works in a similar way, through rest?s, and silent passages, which then gives structure to a piece. Music is about time, and painting in this geometric manner has a similarity, through the stretching, and shrinking, through spatial planes. Through the intensity of colour, or the lack of it, a speed is set up, a physiological landscape. Colour is common to describe music, but speed to describe time is not usually used to describe painting.

Peta Sirec, Danielle Coonan and Jen Duncan collaborate in...
Since her birth in 1979 her love for the arts has grown immense and intense. The photographs on display recall an earlier time in her life, a time before she was born. Oh dear beautiful Europe...
Perfecting, perfection, perfected...touch me up baby. Pantie painting protrusions. Pull back! My way! This way! Oh Barbie, Barbie where can you be? The favourite of all the activities was pass the parcel. As I watched eleven eager faces I was reminded of a time when I too waited in anticipation, observing the parcel as it was unwrapped hoping the music would halt when the parcel landed on my lap. After all, unwrapping was just as good as the prize.
Recent honours graduates from Sydney College of the Arts and also co-directors of the artist run space Phatspace, these three girls come together in the project space to create a delicious (perhaps painterly) experience.
