Ian Woo is a painter working in the language of abstraction. Influenced by forms of modernism, perceptual abstraction and the sound structures of music improvisation, his work is characterised by a sense of gravitational and representational change. He often uses the term ‘picture making’ when describing his position and approach, maintaining the discipline and evolvement of painting as a vehicle for pictorial reflexivity. Falling Off Plastic Chairs presents Woo’s most recent work, as he continues to explore the possibilities of alternating spatial relationships within the pictorial plane.
“I have a history of falling off from chairs. Recently, while making a work, I fell off a plastic stool and decided to name this exhibition after the incident. Stuff like that happens but this time it actually began to feel good – like a victory chant.”
