REMOVING THE TRACES:

ASPECTS OF ABSTRACTION FROM THE JANET HOLMES A COURT COLLECTION

11 FEBRUARY - 3 JUNE 2018

 

There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality. Pablo Picasso

 

This exhibition presents intriguing aspects of south-west landscape from the Janet Holmes à Court Collection. It includes very special works by Howard Taylor, Monique Tippett, Guy Grey-Smith, Ben Pushman, Rod Garlett, Brett Nannup and Revel Cooper. The works demonstrate varying degrees and methods of abstraction e.g. ultra-simplification, gestural and expressive brushwork, flattening of the picture surface and saturated colour, whilst maintaining the formal principles of line, form, shape, value, movement and composition. The real subjects recede and the aesthetics become the dominant factors.

The purpose of this exhibition is to share some significant and captivating abstract works from the collection, works representing the essence of land, forest and water alongside demonstrations of longstanding Aboriginal presence.
