Samara Adamson-Pinczewski’s practice focuses on the relationship between geometric abstract art, architecture and urban space. Her boldly coloured paintings, constructions, sculptures, drawings and studio-based installations explore ambiguous spatial readings created through the use of reflective materials, fragmented abstract forms and oblique linear structures.

This exhibition celebrates Adamson-Pinczewski’s sinuous compositions that encourage the viewer to walk in circles around the works, to figure out their geometry and catch their colour shifts. Illustrating the artist’s mastery of paint technology and colour theory, ‘Light Gestures: Samara Adamson-Pinczewski’ features works from her 20-year career alongside new paintings and sculptures acquired by the Town Hall Gallery.

Samara Adamson-Pinczewski: Light gestures is a survey exhibition that uncovers the relationship between geometric abstract art and urban space.

I’m really interested in the new reflective glass technologies in particular there's a lot of iridescent effects that shift and change depending on the time of day and the atmospheric effects.

My work changes in relation to the light, it might change in relation to where the viewers stand, it might even be what they're wearing is projected onto that surface.

The scale, the colour, the particular structures I use, they are all visual devices for a reaction to occur from the viewer.
