Ferry brett dreamer 2018 oil on linen 92x87%20wellmade

Brett Ferry, Dreamer, Oil on Linen, 92 x 87cm, 2018

Acclimation

Brett Ferry’s latest series of work “Acclimation” contemplates the passing of unnoticed beauty, and the resilience of forms in the process of adapting to a new environment. This idea has also manifested itself as an analogy for Ferry’s working practices, as he explores the melding of new technology and tradition, deconstructing and reconstructing the landscape, and exploring the post-digital. The work utilises a parody of marks to embrace and pay homage to this process, attempting to describe the tension and entanglement between humans, technology, and nature. This creates a contemporary discourse for the tradition of landscape painting, one of social metaphor and possibilities.

Tom Borgas - Unexpanded Sculpture

Tom Borgas is an emerging artist working from a sculptural foundation across multiple platforms including gallery and project work, public sculpture, festival interventions and performance. Developed through an oscillation between digital and analogue processes his work is an investigation of the space between image and object, virtual and physical, maker and viewer.

Using the idea expanded painting as point of reference, this body of work represents a compression of larger scale installations, reconfiguring it’s materials, processes and forms as a collection of sculptural sketches that accommodate the parameters of the gallery space.

Thom Buchanan - Structural Integrity

'Structural Integrity' is Buchanan’s ongoing investigation into the amalgamation of images, surface tensions and materiality. He creates works which highlight the duality of the natural versus built environments.

The paint vivaciously dances on the surface and there is an energetic vitality expressed in his works. Buchanan’s paintings examine the architectural and natural archives created over time. These archeological sedimentary layers are like a time capsule, giving viewers a porthole into the past.

Stephen Trebilcock - Cornucopia

"Cornucopia is defined as abundance, excess, profusion and wealth and in this exhibition, I continue my never-ending passion for subjects of nature, particularly with Australian native plants, foods, fruits and vegetables.

I love to fill the canvases with an abundance of these subjects and to capture the light and vibrant colours which I am fortunate to experience at my Adelaide Hills studio. I find that I am using even more paint in an impasto style, to achieve heavily textured and contemporary paintings, giving a three-dimensional representation of the subjects.

I enjoy the challenge in bringing these subjects to life on canvas, and have included native birds, which I regularly feed outside my studio."

Cydonia, charcoal on paper, 65 x 52cm

Yanni Floros - UnVeiled

The idea for this body of work has evolved over time and is a continuation of the body of work exhibited at Art Central Hong Kong earlier this year. This series began with the exploration of the human body as a landscape and evolved into an experiment with the medium of charcoal pushing the limits of its flexibility and although these are realist drawings they can be viewed as abstract works of art.

The 'Veil' represents not only the shape of land, lake and mountains but also the internal and external landscapes of the human body. These works are not direct portraits of individuals or landscapes and they are not designed to be instead they explore the form and texture of both.

Tipping point oil on canvas 152.4 x 132.8cm

Eleanor Zecchin - Good Bits

"In some ways, my process of making paintings parallels the way I experience how memories are selectively forgotten or recalled. Opting to take from life as well as a constructed reality allows me possibilities which provide visual complexity and an ability to reveal, conceal and codify stories embedded within the paintings.

The seasonal flora continues to document time in my work. From pure abstract expressionist responses to representational language; all vocabularies signify something essential relating to my inquisitiveness about life and painting. At times moments of clarity within the work are almost tangible but inevitably fleeting, leaving me with a sense of longing for the next surface to continue digging into.

I am conscious of allowing, if not actively looking for formal elements - ‘good bits’ – in each work. This is driven by my curiosity about what makes a painting engaging for both myself as the maker and the viewer."

Focal Point: New Realist Painting

24 May 2018

Review by Tiarney Miekus

“Painting is always fictional,” says Tony Lloyd when discussing the links between photography, painting and realism. While the artist is interested in the various realities that can be depicted through paintings, he’s also invested in how photography can be a tool for painting. Lloyd is exhibiting in Focal Point: New Realist Painting, alongside prominent Australian painters: Ben Howe, Camilla Tadich, Matthew Quick, Robin Eley and Shannon Smiley.
