ABOUT THE WORK
The rich, layered ink in this 20-color silkscreen is a material expression of Sally Kindberg’s preoccupation with surface and what lies under the slick image. From Kindberg’s painting of the same name, Dynamite has a pair of uncannily white teeth chomping uneasily on a cigar.
“Interested in both high and low brow culture, I play on the notion of the tragicomic in a society that is both civilised and ridiculous. This humorous approach acts as a portal that enables us to explore our more unsavoury emotions. My paintings stay predominantly figurative - the figurative, which is the starting point, at times moves towards abstraction. In my paintings, I am interested in the contrast between flatness and the illusion of three-dimensionality, looking for a composition which is often a double take, highlighting the overlooked in the everyday through the use of colour, mark making, stylisation.”
