Mark Corfield-Moore | Other follies and picnics | Alzueta Gallery | Barcelona, Spain

June 22 - July 31 2022

Alzueta Gallery is pleased to present Mark Corfield-Moore’s first solo exhibition in Spain, entitled “Other Follies and Picnics”. Corfield-Moore’s practice often draws upon on his Thai/British heritage and experience as part of the diaspora in the rural area of Dorset, England. 

The exhibition features a new body of works which utilize the ikat weaving technique that Corfield-Moore learnt in Northern Thailand. In place of traditional binding and dyeing, he paints directly onto the warp threads before winding them on the loom and then hand weaving. These woven paintings are then stretched and presented on canvases. Ikat is distinctive due to its glitchy or blurry aesthetic, and the artist likens this instability to the subject of memories and our constantly evolving relationship to the past.
