The paintings of James Gleeson reveal powerful and complex relationships between the human psyche and human experience - between myth and reality. His representations of natural and supernatural phenomena suggest a primordial past from which humankind has emerged and an apocalyptic future towards which humans are destined. Gleeson’s paintings are a potent reminder that human kind is one small component within the grand scheme of the cosmos.
The Politics of Perception presents works by artists Symons and Targett that map critical issues surrounding our environment. Both artists poetically and potently chart landmarks of anthropocentric disaster that cannot be found on any atlas or world map. This exhibition is presented in association with Art + Climate = Change 2015, a Melbourne-wide CLIMARTE festival seeking to harness the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.
The paintings of Fred Williams and constructions of John Nixon highlight the process and expression of abstraction. For both artists, nature or more specifically landscape has been the starting point for an enquiry into the distillation and articulation of sensory experience.
