In studying the impact of time and space on her painting practice, Fiona Stirling made up two terms ‘painting ad hoc’ and ‘inbetweener painting’. These terms describe the process of painting in between other jobs or responsibilities.
This project focusses on significant aspects of Fiona Stirling’s painting process including painting ad hoc and inbetweener painting in relation to other women painters. Later in the programme, Independents Biennial will be sharing a public symposium curated by Fiona Stirling
The page above gives some insight into the working methods of the artist, as well as an initial moment of realisation regarding ‘painting ad hoc’.
Fiona Stirling, project updates:
- Online Symposium with women artists sharing their experiences of creating work between commitments, focussing on inbetweener art and ad-hoc painting. Dates TBC.
