The Hackney Cut is proud to present the work of two artists, Magda Blasinska and Tim Adams. Though Blasinska and Adams are diverse in aesthetic, both artists take a similar approach and engagement with the process of manipulating their chosen mediums. Their engagement with the process of mark making, and pushing of the potential of their materials show both a contrast and coalescence between their works.

Magda Blasinska's painting explores the potential of art material – particularly oils – and is central to her studio practice. Her process of painting, conducted by both logic and intuition, results in a retrogressive process of erasing precious forms and terminating layers. The painting remains in an ongoing process until the different elements explain the continuity through shape, layers, ornaments and movement.

Magda treats painting as a two-way process of creative development. Her work is a constant dialogue between artist and canvas, between the internal and external, ever remaining present in her work.

Tim Adams's monochromatic drawing explores the directness of a pen to paper. His practice straddles a point between catharsis and compulsive obsession. His latest works are a departure from the character driven constructed landscapes/backdrops of repeated text, entangled line and half realised forms, and see Adams tackling more personal themes including deterioration and communication breakdown.
