Catalogue Note
Working in a range of mediums including painting, collage, installation, and video, Pendleton uses language as a primary material, recontextualizing text and image to refigure contemporary and historical narratives. Pendleton brushes, throws, and sprays paint to generate as many kinds of marks and “mistakes” as possible: a chorus of gestures. The titular phrase, WE ARE NOT, never quite resolves as it competes with stray flecks, splatters, and drips. Caught between abstraction and representation, a field of stuttering language emerges.
