SURVEY - DON MUMMERY

Sixty Years of Painting

27 May - 25 Jun

Official Opening: 2.15pm Sat 27 May

 

Artist Don Mummery continues to hone his arts practice of over sixty years from his home studio in the Peel Region of Western Australia.

 

Don’s current exhibition is a glimpse back at earlier works in juxtaposition with more recent works. Don has modified his approach to painting from an early realistic style to a more abstract style of creating works, which places more emphasis on pattern and texture to express the subject.

 

On the subject of abstraction and realism within painting, Don states, “Looking at abstract paintings can be compared to looking into the flames of a fire where the mind’s eye can perceive fantasy animals, faces, complex patterns and colour combinations that stimulate the imagination. A good realistic painting, too, may take the viewer beyond the original and may even supersede the original, allowing us to see the subject in new and exciting ways.”
