Description

Current Exhibits: TARI BIRD CONTEMPORARY ART 1st August - ends -1st October OFFICIAL OPENING 2pm Sat. 6th August Tarli Bird ‘Landscapes’ is an exhibition of landscapes that capture a combination of local and interstate locations. Bird is an artist inspired by a passion for travelling and exploring. Intuition guides the recreations of her surroundings- reimagining the built and natural environment with simple lines, colours, texture and patterns that extend the boundaries of representation. With a deliberate application of acrylic, spray paint and embroidery, she uses each layer of materials to represent the effects of human action on the natural environment. The first layer of acrylic paint suggests human influence, the second of spray paint suggests human influences and the third layer of embroidery indicates the impact of both natural events and urban developments on a landscape. THIRD DIMENSION SPLINTER CONTEMPORARY ARTIST 6th August - ends - 6th November One of the leading physics model of the last half century suggests the universe operates with ten dimensions but the world, as we know it, has three dimensions of space … length, width and depth. A third dimension adds solidity to a two - dimensional system. It confers a reality. In this exhibition Splinter Contemporary Artists, each in their own way, are conveying their own reality of a third dimension.
