For her first solo museum exhibition, British artist Mary Ramsden presents a new series of paintings grouped together in response to the architecture of the AAM’s Gallery 6. Expanding on her interest in prose, social media, and our daily interface with technology, Ramsden’s gestural marks echo the physical residue left when swiping the touch screen of a tablet or smart phone. Setting these urgent scorings among seemingly fixed geometric planes, Ramsden alludes to our pervasive relationship with the screen in daily life.
