A reminder that our new exhibition, "Insight and Sprawl"", recent paintings and drawings by the renowned Tasmanian artist, John Ancher, is opening tomorrow night from 6pm to 8pm.
John says about the works in this exhibition: "The paintings in Insight and Sprawl seek to proclaim a personal imagery. Colour is used to engage emotional attachment. Symbolism and focused abstraction contribute a syntax to the visual language. Answers are not offered, only hints of possibility.
"INSIGHT presents mindscapes. The Greek Cross is always a starting point. By eroding the geometric certainty attached to this emblem of civilised thought and attainment, the paintings explore abstract ideas such as subterfuge, anguish, and discovery.
"SPRAWL presents landscapes. The cellular nature of our living environment is reflected upon in paintings that suggest the entrapement of those who dwell there. The regimented landscape imposed on the natural world conceals private ambition behind the mask of decency."
The artist will be present at the opening. The exhibition will be officially launched by Marco Luccio.
Hope to see you all there!
