REVERBERATIONS: PAINTING AND IMPERMANENCE
18 NOVEMBER - 16 DECEMBER 2017
This exhibition considers painting as a vehicle for meditating on impermanence a worldview which crystalises an understanding that nothing is as it seems, nothing is static, life is constant movement, forever in a state of flux. The paintings are shaped and formed in a manner which analogously embodies this restlessness through accident, chance and reflection.

After graduating with a MA (Visual Arts) from ANU in 1993 he was awarded an International Samstag Scholarship in 1994 to study painting in Holland (1995-96). He works across the mediums of painting, drawing and artists books to create work which focuses on the forming and deforming image in relation to place, process impermanence and embodiment.
