Close Encounters...with the Collection

Close Encounters...with the Collection

from February 25, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until May 21, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Every artwork has a story to tell, if only we stop and listen for long enough to hear it!

Close Encounters invites visitors to explore a range of recent Gallery acquisitions to discover their individual stories and their meanings within the wider collection.

Each of the works presented within this richly engaging exhibition either presents or suggests a dynamism between opposing forms, where one subject ‘encounters’ another. The result is a series of exchanges between styles, forms and content with sometimes surprising outcomes.

Close Encounters showcases works by Michelle Molinari, Andrew Browne, Fiona Reynolds, Michael Young, Dianne Fogwell, Jim Paterson and Sanné Mestrom, aside others.

Clive Murray-White / Michelle Caithness: a Collaboration

Cowwarr Art Space

This is an exhibition of drawing and sculpture by two artists who have discovered that they share an almost identical set of artistic values.

Clive makes marble sculptures about or based on Michelle whilst Michelle draws Clive in his studio making the sculptures of her.  Both ask numerous questions about the evolution of portraiture and neither pressures the other to create flattering “realistic” representations.

Portraiture, of any kind, is inevitably collaborative and possibly invasive but when two artists are both artist and subject, things can become doubly interesting.  In this case each has progressively encouraged the other to accept new freedoms and experiment with the intention of getting closer to his or her true expressive potential.

Printmaking, by its nature, is about producing more than one copy of an art work...

This exhibition however, is based on an exploration of the techniques and aesthetics of printmaking with a view to creating 'unique' works of art.

Robert and Chris are producing their artwork using a number of traditional printing techniques which can be used to create 'one offs' in contradiction to the usual printmaker's aims.

Artists Statement…..Mark Reyment

Art is what happens when I’m busy making plans!  What starts out as a simple idea becomes increasingly complex, I like to play with disorder and my work reflects degrees of disorder frozen in time.

I often give my work whimsical titles, usually based on whatever was rattling around in my head at the time.

It’s not the fall that kills you (financial pressures)

The worlds strangest married couple (a reflection on love)

A Berlin crisis (feeling under siege)

A man of letters (self-depreciation).

These are things from everyday life given expression in Boxes, clouds, cages, flagpoles, scaffold, factories and towers, what seems chaotic is not quite so! There is a certain amount of order, but there is always a point where I just stop and say that’s it!
