Sydney Contemporary 2019

Al Poulet & Sai-Wai Foo
12 September 2019 - 15 September 2019

For Sydney Contemporary, the gallery will be presenting a new series of paintings by Al Poulet and sculpture by Sai-Wai Foo. 

Al Poulet (Paddington Art Prize, Winner, 2018): His current work, through a series of large-scale abstract paintings, captures the artist's relationship with his immediate surroundings. Although his works cast off the representational trappings of our reality, each painted mark and visceral line indexes Poulet's connection to his home in Wedderburn, NSW.

Sai-Wai Foo: In the artist's assemblages, aged pleated paper is set against ceramic, wood and glass to create works that are simultaneously hard and soft; enduring yet delicate. Foo's materiality prompts viewers to consider discarded materials and reconsider "how things are used in our over-curated and insatiable consumer society".
