Interview Magazine | Purdey Fitzherbert at the Dallas Art Fair | April 2014

15 April 2014

Rachel Small from Interview magazine looked into the increasingly influential Dallas Art Fair and focused on Hus Gallery’s contemporary artist Purdey Fitzherbert:

“British artist Purdey Fitzherbert gets the deep, misty effect in her paintings by first layering primer to conceal the canvas, followed by oil and spray paint. On top is metallic pigment to create millions of “pixels.” The idea is that it mimics our mind’s “after-image,” that is, the remnants of visual stimuli we’re bombarded with daily. It evaporates harmlessly here, drifting away in our unconscious.”
