Zoë Carlon’s paintings on aluminium depict spaces that are simultaneously public and private. Selected subjects, including unoccupied interiors, views through windows and peripheries of the maintained natural world, are developed from images taken of both her immediate environment and unfamiliar transitory spaces. Compositions are formed of thresholds that create a boundary between interior and exterior and awkward impossibilities are formulated within the scenes through the use of manipulated perspectives and an invented palette.
