Doubles and Trebles was originally conceived as a collaborative project between artists Emily Hartley-Skudder and Hamish Coleman for Ramp Gallery in Hamilton, exhibiting from 24 March - 11 April this year. Doubles and Trebles (Reprise) is a re-presentation of this show.
 
At Ramp Gallery, the project was accurately described thus: "For Doubles & Trebles, Coleman and Hartey-Skudder combine their practices to expand and explore the process of making and the act of viewing. References to representational painting play off against formal qualities; the surface is emphasised and the ‘paintings’ pose as backdrops, objects, photographs, and shadows on walls.
The artists’ studio approaches are deconstructed and begin to fold back into each other – disrupting the viewer’s notions of order and completeness, and broadening discourse around the medium of painting by moving beyond the picture plane." 
 
The installation at Ramp Gallery was accompanied by a text commissioned from Ellie Lee-Duncan, entitled The Gamble. Please follow the link to view this essay: http://www.rampgallery.co.nz/assets/Uploads/Essay-Ellie-Lee-Duncan-DoublesTrebles-RampGallery-2019.pdf
