OIL & ACID contrasts the art making styles of abstract printmaker Rachael Dodgson and realist painter Nicole Kerouac. Kerouac’s contribution, OIL, comments on the negative consequences of human decisions regarding the environment and human activity. Dodgson’s abstract prints, ACID, explore the relationship between artist and materials. They also challenge the necessity of representational imagery in art-making.
