Kit Warren's paintings and works on paper explore the weight and significance of intention of a mark, whether it be the deliberate information contained in lines that make up a word or the figurative suggestions contained in horizontal and vertical lines and the circle. The artist uses densely pigmented metallic paints that shimmer against the velvety blackboard-like ground of her work. Warren’s work questions the boundaries of written symbols and sign systems and the meaning when marks dissolve or cohere into significance.
