Everything consists of connection, and these connections are rarely made in a linear or predictable fashion. Ruptures, holes and distortions appear. Zigzag is continual movement, immanent in the dimensions of time and space. It is the movement of the possibilities of life itself. As movement of whole and part bodies, as movement of lightning, as movement of an ear, an eye, a paw, as movement of the forces of gravity and desire, as movement of animals in and out of territory.
–Pie Rankine, 2017

Pie Rankine studied painting at the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne, and went on to exhibit widely in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney in the 1980’s. In 1988 she featured in the exhibition A New Generation at the National Gallery, Canberra, and in 1985 undertook the Australia Council Residency in Besozzo, Italy. In 2014 Rankine began making ceramic sculptures, and is a current Masters candidate at La Trobe University. Her work is in the collections of the British Museum (Department of Prints and Drawings), Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, National Gallery of Australia, National Gallery of Victoria and the John McBride Collection, Sydney.

Zigzag is Rankine’s first exhibition at Gallery 9.
