Guest Speaker Bruce Esplin AM.
Exhibition Dates: 2 - 24 March
We cordially invite you to meet and share a glass with four artists.
In 'RETROSPECTIVE' BRIDGET NICHOLSON brings together an interactive installation of her exploratory work of many years, where Bridget delves into the human as part of the whole collective. Her interest in using organic materials and craft based processes, help create a space of exchange, where the senses are enlisted in a layered experience to uncover stories that speak of emotional and visceral experiences of land and place. The process is centred on engaging with people and places and finding ways of collecting and transforming material into installations that connect us all. With an extensive art practice that merges craft and ethnography, Bridget's show Retrospective promises to delight us all.
Project Space 1.
'THE MEMORY GARDEN' by JUDY HUDSON
In her latest body of work, through black and white photography, Judy evokes longing memories of times past. Through her lenses, Judy invites us to imagine colours, textures and place the characters in our own mind's time and place.
Project Space 2.
'TRANSFORM' by JANICE GOBEY
Much of this work was realised during a 3 month residency in Leipzig, Germany. 'Transform' shows the viewer the process, where the linen is left bare to reveal the beginning of the painting. 'Based on the allegory of the fox and the goose, trying to outsmart each other...In a utopian world, the roles are reversed. All characters let go of fear and embrace love'. Janice Gobey is a finalist in the Wyndham Art Prize 2018.
Project Space 3.
'RESTRAIN' by CALLY LOTZ
This new series of oil paintings bring drama and a sense of uncertainty to the still life genre. The background is left vacant on purpose to give no clues to place, intensifying the feeling of unease. Currently studying MFA at RMIT, Cally will be present at the opening.
