Wednesday 22 February - Saturday 10 March 2012
Opening night: Thursday 23 February from 6pm
GALLERY OPEN: WED - SAT 12-5PM
This exhibition sees both artists pushing their individual art practices into new directions. SPEIGHT will be exhibiting for the first time drawings within a white gallery space. While WELLS is exploring ideas beyond her signature pattern and abstract based works on paper.
Dwuan LaTrobe writes about the works:
"Ahn's works are a series she entitles Garden Party Suite. And I'm transported to a world where things are much simpler. Tea on the lawn and a nice game of croquet. When video games looked like:
You awake in a garden. To the west the blooms are huddled close. There are paths to South, North, East.
Pixelated pinpricks, hexagonal cartwheels; I love the simplistic nature of Ahns work. There's a certain etherealness to it, like the ghost of a tatterdemalion. Poke it with a stick and it just disappears.
Peter's work, on the other hand, doesn't do anything like fade away into the back ground, it's just there. The wry wit of a mad magician with a well-thumbed tarot deck of fantastical images. In an inverted 35 card spread on 2 walls. Blasting away with colour, seeped in symbolism. A well-spiced psychedelic soup.
I like the one with the divers. It's telling me something deep."
