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.

A Place in The Crowd: Nadine Lineham

A Place in The Crowd: Nadine Lineham

from May 05, 2017 @ 10:00 AM until June 26, 2017 @ 5:00 PM
Cowwarr Art Space

In A Place in The Crowd, Nadine Lineham co-opts images from contemporary digital media that bombard our daily lives.

Merging figuration with abstraction allows Lineham to capture the psychological state of her subject(s) in an authentic way.  Her paintings show passages that lead from photo-realist definition to near abstracted formlessness.

Her figures occupy environments that range from the menacing, to empty voids.  The brush strokes, shapes, colour and line all combine to create form and structure to her compositions.  Resulting in the formation of marks and motifs that have a degree of velocity, establishing a physical engagement with the viewer and translating into an experience and structure that is felt.

Nadine Lineham lives and works in Gippsland. She has been a finalist in; The EMSLA Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, Coffs Harbour Regional Art Gallery, The John Leslie Art Prize, Gippsland Art Gallery and The Williamstown Festival Of Contemporary Art, Substation Newport.

Step inside the world of Winter, where ice and snow become the harbingers of wonder and mystery.

Winter draws on a range of works from the Gallery’s permanent collection to explore the psychological and aesthetic dimensions of the darkest season.  Through these works we experience winter not just as a seasonal chill but a complex and compelling state of mind.

Winter showcases a diverse range of works spanning painting, printmaking, photography and ceramic.  While cumulatively exploring the condition of being cold, each work explores the individual facets of the season through means that are unique and engaging.

The exhibition features works by Raymond Arnold, Judy Dorber, William Breen, Kaye Green, Hiroe Swen, Gail Nichols and Stephen Wickham, aside others.
