Opening speaker Andrew Gaynor
'When I refer to ‘pure’ abstraction, I am thinking more about, say, the visual difference between Expressionism and Abstract Expressionism. One is full of spiky elongated, exaggerated reality coupled with recognisable human expression, anxiety being predominant. The other is not illustrational; instead, it is marked by mood, observation, energy and the actually visible involvement of the painterly mark.' Andrew Gaynor, excerpt from the opening speech, 21 October, 2014.
'Direction Now features the work of some of Australia's finest abstract artists.'
Opening Tuesday October 21, 6-8pm, Town Hall Gallery, all welcome.
