Elizabeth McIntosh

Untitled (With Round Feet)

2005
McIntosh’s work explores the medium of painting and reflects upon the tropes of modernism and abstraction. Her playful geometric compositions incorporate purposefully awkward (yet pleasurable) forms and colours. Here, pockets of peach and green disrupt the bluish palette, and crooked triangles create a push-and-pull effect that challenges the two dimensionality of the medium. The painting appears to be propped up on little feet, a whimsical detail typical of the artist’s approach.
