I'm super excited to finally announce what I've been busy working on with the amazing
Solo Show // Modern Times
October 29th - November 12th
Modern Times, 311 Smith Street, Fitzroy, VIC 3065
This new body of work is an introspective series of abstract paintings inspired by my personal world, a world that like everybody else's, shifted so dramatically in 2020. I began to look closer to home for inspiration, in particular, within the walls of my own studio and the library of visual inspiration and mementos I have collected over many years.
With lockdowns in place due to Covid-19, my focus very much moved inwards. I was seeking simplicity – and reaching out to the comforts and connections of what surrounded me. My studio wall and its snippets from decades of collecting provided me with pops of colour, moody hues, strong shapes and landscape photos. These collected and curated inspirations proved to be the perfect inspirations for this personal body of work.
Everyday Ephemera follows the trajectory of past shows as my work became both simultaneously more structured and more relaxed; small areas of colour have given way to large swathes of paint with hard edges. The tighter compositions of earlier work have been released, allowing these blocks of colour to take on a more floaty quality as layers of underpainting become visible in between. The subtly directional brushwork and layering bring a moody yet soft, fluid energy to each work.
Pre-sales for this show start from 10am on Thursday October 22nd.
