The second show to celebrate the gallery's first year will focus on light and space, elements artists consider strongly when rendering or interpreting landscape.
This exhibition brings together the subject of still life alongside personal and arbitrary objects which fascinate and infatuate artists.
In this most recent body of work, Bec Juniper relates to the remote Western Australian landscape as distinctively feminine, despite many of the area’s activities, such as mining and fishing, being traditionally associated with a masculine gender. Drawn to the desert and open spaces in a meditative way, Juniper uses intuition, employing different techniques with a buffet of natural materials from oxides and ochres.
Celia Perceval paints a sense of the Australian landscape bursting into life and, at times, these new paintings seem almost overwhelmed by the intensity of their subject matter. Yet these works are less about the precise subject, the depiction of bush and birds, and more about the artist's love of paint. With a preference for painting plein air, Perceval's work is always a direct response to her surrounds.
"While my work is expressionistic and you can make out the narrative, I paint in abstraction, it flows through me. This is a conscious process despite its seemingly meditative approach”, states Perceval.
Kerry McInnis: "My latest body of work continues my efforts to evoke the landscape as the compelling entity that I perceive. It is an uncomfortable - sometimes disturbing, always engrossing - immersion into space."
Nolan's landscapes are characterised by space, the vastness and emptiness of the Australian outback and the endless stretch of its eastern coastline.
