James Hugonin’s exhibition at Ingleby Gallery celebrates the completion of his Binary Rhythm sequence. Seven of nine large paintings Hugonin has made over the past six years are exhibited. Identically sized each continue the artist’s exploration of the dualities of order and chance in a personal approach to abstract painting.
Hugonin has been working in this way for the last thirty years and each painting employs a familiar language of tiny rectangular marks, applied in their thousands, colour by colour, within a grid onto a gessoed ground. Painted over many months they evolve gradually with increasingly complex and surprising results.
