The paintings in this exhibition share a sense of improvisation. Like the act of drawing, the works are a way for the artist to work through ideas.

About

Their marks have been made with a speed and spontaneity, executed quickly to capture changing thoughts and ideas. Some of the artists have been drawn to a particular location, repeatedly, to better understand it. For others, it’s the social and political landscape of the world today they are questioning. Memory, and its varied versions of truth, often acts as a source or starting point. From the commonplace to the cosmic, the eight artists in this exhibition are questioning with paint, what is this place?

Opening Event: Fri 21 Apr 19.00 – 21.00, Little Wonder Café and pay bar, free entry, all welcome.

Artists’ Discussion: Sat 22 Apr, 11.00. Join the exhibiting artists and curator Blair Todd for an informal discussion about works in the exhibition. Free with admission.
