Colour It Blue

Beata Geyer & Louise Blyton

Colour it Blue is a site-responsive installation that aims to explore perceptual contingencies and disjuncture of colour, form and spatial organisations. A collaborative project, with Louise Blyton, Colour it Blue is realised through a flow of planar, spatial and chromatic accumulations, designations and negotiations.

This is where you belong

An exhibition by Sarah Wallace

Whimsical, Joyous and Instinctual… these are some words that describe the remarkable work by Melbourne artist Sarah Wallace.

Sarah paints abstracted landscapes ‘en plein air’. Sarah says that, “These techniques enable me to paint directly what I am seeing, hearing and feeling”. She describes her technique as being an, “instinctual process”, and that she, “tunes into the colours and connects with what is happening at the time”.

Sarah studied fine art at Monash University where she completed her post graduate degree in Fine Art. The artist has also studied under William Harding, Godwin Bradbeer and Terry Batt, and has been teaching painting for over 20 years. Sarah’s work was recently in Australian House and Garden as part of the overall redesign of Mirabel House in St Kilda where she collaborated with well known interior designer Diane Bergeron.

Exhibition Feb 1 - 23


Not Home

An exhibition curated by Aaron Hoffman

Torika Bolatagici, Genevieve Douglas-Byrnes, Aaron Hoffman, Jessica Ibacache, Ryo Takara, Anne Scott Wilson, Chaohui Xie

‘Not Home’ features works by artists responding to an open-ended provocation of ‘home’. Home, or the idea of home, comprises a set of beliefs or myths that reflect both personal and cultural influences. The slightest disturbance to our attachment of home challenges security and stability. 'Not Home' presents seven artworks by artists expressing this dislocation and the creative processing of issues that betray the promise of home. Activated by social, political and spiritual thinking, and the application of diverse mediums; the works shown generate a dialogue between each unique voice, engaging the commitment of art-making and what it is to be an artist.

Exhibition Jan 18 - 24

Inferior Interior

An exhibition by Luke Adams

Exhibition runs November 1 - 22

"This solo exhibition Inferior Interior marks a shift to incorporate pictorial painting into my broader contemporary art practice. Within this series of paintings contradictions of contemporary life are explored via different painting styles. Influences from Realism and the Renaissance are paired with minimal abstraction. The works explore notions of fraught histories, unrealistic ambitions, individual dislocation, fractured identities and domestic ideals.

I have long been concerned with the relationship between 2d & 3d, and the slippage between them—where one becomes the other. In this series I bring my conceptual and spatial practice to the conventions of painting with the aim of fostering a greater engagement with this resilient and historical medium. In doing so, I hope to strengthen the 2d elements within my work while engaging in a broader discussion about the role of painting in contemporary art."

Luke recently completed an MFA from the VCA and is a sessional lecturer at RMIT.
