Relative - Eliza Tyrell, Nolan Tyrell, Linda Wheeler
15 February - 5 March, 2018
The artists take inspiration from the natural world and the surroundings within which they travel and live, and have responded to each other’s work and ideas aiming for a dialogue to emerge that the viewer can enter into and share. The works seek to engage the senses, not just sight, but smell and touch. Relative refers not only to the correlation between the works and the textural layers that imbue them with the artists’ personalities and ways of seeing, but the relationship between the artists themselves.
Distillations - Susie Monte
25 January - 12 February, 2018
Distillations is a collection of paintings created during a period in Susie’s art practice where she settled upon the key aspirational outcome for her work: joy. In creating this exhibition, Susie was motivated by a desire to express the sophistication of colour and the boldness of form. The works are a physical distillation of that process, with their emotional distillation being the impact on viewers. Thematically, Distillations is Susie’s articulation of the essence of nature and its beauty.
