Supported by Melissa Gordon’s silkscreened wallpaper remaining from "Modelling a Painting: an accumulation of information on liquids and gestures in time," Eileen Quinlan’s photographic images expose photography’s fetish as well as its ‘base materialism’. Hers are gesticulations moving between glass surface, image surface, motherhood and mortality. They may seem temporarily frozen, yet these ‘gestures’ refer to endurance –as "Acting Out" suggests– as well as to liquidity and transformation. The glass of flatbed scanner and shower cabin point at the glass used during the exposure of the silkscreened wallpaper grid –pressing down objects such as a clothes hanger and a bra– so that all visual layers end up affecting each other.
