Just Seen and Dashed Off - Karen MacDonald

Karen MacDonald's exhibition All This is nothing but paper and cardboard. The collages and constructions are spare, formally strong statements of interaction and relativity. The power of a dot - or many of them. Missing or added. The installation of individual elements on the large wall of Chase's is a collection of gems, each perfect in itself in its lack of preciousness. The power to see the potential in the ordinariness of found shapes and materials. Agnes Martin favorably comes to mind for some of the pieces on paper. It's humble but ambitious art.

Perimeter Gallery at Chase's Daily, Belfast
