    Control to Collapse - an exhibition navigating a variety of gestural acts within painting. The exhibition was accompanied by a catalogue which included visuals of the works by each of the nine artists and introductory text provided by Niamh White.

    "Control to Collapse, the title aimed to encapsulate the range of gestures these nine artists employ, from the tightly controlled to a point where the gesture is undermined and almost allowed to disappear. Under the name ‘PaintUnion’, Rebecca and Liz have collaborated on a number of talks about painting and other projects, including ‘Pool’ at Griffin Gallery and PIY PaintLounge at Sluice Biennial (with Wendy Saunders and Paula McArthur of paintbritain)".
