Catch explores the fence, border, and enclosement in our built landscape.
In new painting installations, signs and signals collide with punctuation motifs to activate a language of landscape. Here Solnick contemplates, through an unfolding of the painting surface into passageways and fences, the forms that echo her walks and explorations, gently questioning the structure of the urban landscape.
“Landscape has all the features of language. It contains the equivalent of words and parts of speech — pattern of shape, structure, material, formation, and function”. — Anne Whiston Spirn
Solnick’s practice is concerned with a storytelling of land and lived spaces, tracking patterns in the structuring and infrastructure of our environments. These stories are told partly through material choices and partly through form, diagram and narrative. Surfaces are built from composites of paper, continually dismantled and rebuilt. Paintings expand from the wall, wrapping and spiralling to form interior voids, enclosures and passageways.

“Monoprinting is an umbrella term for techniques of relief printmaking which produce on a single unique print. I have fine-tuned a painterly technique which I use within my practice, where I paint onto a metal plate using intaglio ink. The plate is then run through an etching press onto soaked paper similarly to the etching process. The slightly damp paper under the pressure of the press is able to pick up fine brush work and textures in a different way to direct painting and also a beautiful vibrancy from the pigments.”
