An installation of paintings by Enya Lachman-Curl.

Following an extensive engagement with Stour Space, Enya Lachman-Curl presents Dive, a divulgence of her own process as a studio based painter; the disarray and day-to-day mysteries of her practice.

The collection of work represents an obsession with technical attainment and a temptation towards spontaneity and risk.

Displayed across sumptuously painted oils, Lachman-Curl’s singular painting language is delicate and precise. A narrative of nuanced colour and ambiguous fictional spaces, forays into new elements and material considerations. While there might be a recognisable style, these works also evidence Lachman-Curl’s continuous jettisoning of presumptions.

Throughout the installation elements subside, recur and change. For Lachman-Curl, each painting intends to undermine the other to an extent, retaining singularity within a cohesive but shifting network of conceptual enquiry.

Combining this seriousness of intention with an ambitious playfulness, Dive intends to create an evocative atmosphere through a network of engaging new work. 

Lachman-Curl creates a space to allow oneself to become submerged within a shifting space of constant transformation – a bright speckle of pink might appear then recur again across the room, or a curled form which changes shape or colour.
