Goia Mujalli investigates paint as a material and how it sits on a surface. Like a series of valves in a constant state of contraction and expansion, her work operates through things, situations and states, which enter the painting and run their course. Does the act produce the meaning? Removal – as metaphor for doubt or ephemerality – would be the best word to describe this painting process. All the paintings are marked with erasures, with moments of presence and precision. At first an act of indecision, these marks become a conscious part of the process. Through the repetition of rhythmic marks, the abstractions in her paintings re-create the essence of existing objects and states.
