One of Pan Huiting’s modus operandi for this series is to “screen grab” whatever catches her eye around her with her geriatric LX3 camera. She likes mundane subjects, which constitute a clearing space for her to push paint around the canvas, serving the sort of function that Ulysses serves in Joyce’s homonymous novel – a structure, or scaffolding around which the work is built; “exercises in style” to borrow the titular words of Queneau.
Most of the subjects that interest her are gastronomic – sculptural goopy piles of paint emerging from the plane of the canvas to sit corporeally on dishes, plates and platters, foregrounding the paint by which they are composed. Whether dragged or slathered on in an explosion of colour, it is her hope that these paint-ings be served up as veritable feasts for the eyes.
