4 – 20 May - [6X6!] Exhibition
Six artists are each exhibiting six new paintings, featuring John Graham, Victoria Howlett, Judi Singleton, Wendy Stokes, Amica Whincop and Gail Willoughby.
John Graham’s paintings depict the Gouldian finch, which was once common across Northern Australia. This small bird is now restricted to small populations and may soon become extinct in the wild.
Victoria Howlett is a colorist and her latest paintings meander between abstraction and representation as shapes are reduced to blocks of colour, richly layered and scraped back to create complex yet intimate surfaces.
Judi Singleton’s expressive naive style combines a riot of childlike human figures, birds, trees and buildings and her paintings for this exhibition include abstractions based on the local coast and Corio Bay.
Wendy Stokes’ works connect with experiences in her immediate coastal vicinity: the ocean and its edge and clearly reflect nature’s intensity.
Amica Whincop’s undulating stone-like forms float, loosely connected, in an apparent void of negative space and are predominantly influenced by the intricacies of nature.
Gail Willoughby’s bold, colourful paintings of cacti reflect a love of potted plants and the domestic garden.
