Kerrie Poliness works within the parameters of geometric abstraction while embracing permutation and decorative possibility. Her practice is influenced by the works of the late Sol Lewitt, a pioneering conceptual artist who introduced the notion of how ideas and instructions function as art. This work usually exists only as a set of instructions. Red matter wall drawing #3 is actually an instruction manual on how to make the drawing; the resulting work is made by gallery installation staff and thus subtly changes every time the work is realised.
