DRAWN, Redland Art Gallery, 7 February - 21 March 2021
Drawn explores the edges of drawing – the places where this most fundamental of art forms intersects with and infiltrates other media. Artists Courtney Coombs, Piyali Ghosh, Helen Hardess, Aaron Perkins, Annie O’Rourke, Jude Roberts, Daniel Sherington, Sancintya Mohini Simpson, Branka Sinobad and Natalie Wood bring a local perspective to the international discussion about drawing’s boundless possibilities. Curated by Annie O’Rourke and Natalie Wood.
Courting Time, POP Gallery Brunswick St, 10-21 November 2020
"The slow painter openly courts time as a partner in the process of distributing paint on a canvas.'
- Stephen Westfall, Slow Painting
Courting Time explores the slowness of painting: the idea that the time invested by the artist in making a work, and the viewer in experiencing it, becomes implicit in every painting. The marks on a painting's surface record the persistence of the hand of the artist and become a visual representation of time.
Curated by Annie O'Rourke and Darcy Williams, this exhibition features works by
David M. Thomas
