On Beauty - Robbie Harmsworth @ Fortyfivedownstairs


For artist Robbie Harmsworth, beauty still matters. In On Beauty, Harmsworth presents not just unapologetically beautiful works but works that for her engage with the idea that beauty only comes with depth, with power and, perhaps most importantly, with a bittersweet transience. To illustrate her practice Harmsworth has come to use the term palimpsest; the layering of new text over the scraped away remains of an older text, reusing the primary base material. But the broader meaning is just as relevant: something reused or altered, but still bearing visible traces of its earlier form. This approach allows her work to speak to her interest in how time effects matter....
