Marlee McMahon - Optic White

Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Enter a strange world of supermarket colours and ubiquitous branding in Marlee McMahon’s paintings.

Optic White — an expression commonly associated with toothpaste — is an exhibition that explores the power of advertising through brand recognition. McMahon’s paintings find a balance between abstraction and realism to uncover the growing saturation of retail imagery within our daily visual culture.

Optic White is an exercise in order and control, where the impulse for cleanliness and a ‘sparkling finish’ borders on the obsessive.

Josephine Jakobi - Halocline

Josephine Jakobi - Halocline

from April 29, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until June 11, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Josephine Jakobi blurs the line between art and scientific observation in Halocline.

Jakobi draws on the patterns and rhythms of nature to create meticulous mixed media works, where ecological and biological systems are enmeshed within the fabric of the works themselves.

By creating work ‘from the point of view of an insect’, and by introducing actual organic material into each piece, Jakobi eliminates the distinctions between manmade and natural processes.  The Halocline—where freshwater meets seawater—becomes the point through which a greater set of material investigations can be carried out.

West Gippsland Arts Centre

From an unrivalled musical pedigree and education, JS Bach’s sons blazed a revolutionary path.  With Telemann and others, they were the avant-garde forging a new style.  Combining awe-inspiring virtuosity, deep feeling, and brilliant colours, this is the music that inspired the Classical era.

Rarely heard today, these are some of the most exciting and inventive compositions for chamber orchestra and we can’t wait to share them with you.  Christopher Moore is one of Australia’s most recognised chamber musicians, a viola superstar whose verve and mastery of the instrument has seen him perform for audiences all over the world.

He performs the great Telemann viola concerto, often thought to be the first solo concerto for the instrument, and a meticulous reconstruction of a lost viola concerto from JS Bach’s own transcriptions.

Venue: Wesley of Warragul, 62 Victoria St, Warragul
