Sedimentation


 

 

The Directors of Linton and Kay Galleries, Perth City warmly invite
you and a guest to the opening of

 SEDIMENTATION
 a group exhibition curated by Alessandra D’Arbe

 of works by Galliano Fardin, Terri Brooks, Francesco Villicich and Miik Green

The exhibition will be opened by Bankwest Art Curator, Sandra Murray
 


This exhibition brings together a selected group of artists whose process plays a significant part in the creation of their work. The scope is not so much to reproduce images but to develop them by opening a two-way channel where an exchange of energy is put in motion between the artist and art work. Actions, intuitions and streams of thought are accumulated upon the surface and are responsible not only for determining the outcome of the finished work but also for imbuing it with symbolic reference and meaningful energy.

Each artist’s personal imagery is profoundly connected with nature and evokes thoughts of our origins, our environment and the processes over millennia leading to our current state of
being. What has been left for us on the canvas is the residue of the artist’s filtering of life and the individuating of its essence – a process which ultimately creates the sedimentation of human expression and experience.

For Terri Brooks process is an intuitive act which becomes the art work itself. Through rhythmical vertical gestures of contrasting colours Brooks’ work highlights the effectiveness of expression through the simplicity of form. The laws of nature seem to resonate with these evocative and organic images which are developed until they satisfy the artist’s sense of harmony and essentiality. Alessandra D’Arbe August 2014.
