In Sort of, Kind of, Almost, Jen Noone both enacts and subtly critiques the endless pursuit of perfection. Manipulating the material characteristics of latex paint, Noone repeatedly coats the surfaces of acrylic boxes, picture frames, and shelving units, before scraping away layers of the dried latex. Each new layer of paint represents an attempt to improve upon the previous layers but, rather than perfection, the result is a messy accumulation of frayed skins, the evidence of past attempts. While the pursuit of perfection may inevitably result in failure, Noone’s work suggests that the quest for the ideal form, even if it repeatedly misses the mark, has a beauty and charm all its own.
