Sweet Relief explores the sculptural qualities of the support and frame, and the interaction of form with negative space. The delicately molded plaster works of Tarik Ahlip evoke a chalky, classical carving. Susan Buret’s modular installation of tessellated ply extends beyond the picture plane and across surfaces of the room. Daniel Hollier’s shaped canvases blur the distinction between painting and sculpture and Jake Walker’s hand-crafted ceramic frames become inseparable from the painting contained within. In contrast, the painted forms in Jelena Telecki’s Collision and Samara Adamson-Pinczewski’s Surface Slope define the negative space of the rectangular canvas.
