WAG are now open for 2020!
Been a slight delay but hope to have our main calendar organised soon.
In the meantime, the remaining works from the two main shows from end of last year can still be enjoyed, plus the wonderful works from our stockroom.
Our sincere thanks and best wishes also go out to the brave people helping others deal with the disastrous Australian bushfires. Please help if you can.
Flower Power is a slogan emblematic of the counter culture of the 1960’s. Conversely, flower painting is hardly a radical activity and for me to continue to include floral imagery without falling into the ease of repetition I try to create new ways to present my work.
The use of collaged elements has always interested me, mostly on the periphery of paintings but for this exhibition I have chosen to work on 12mm thick plywood that allows me to attach metal and ephemera over the whole surface area. It is like solving a puzzle only knowing vaguely what the end result might be.
In early 2019 I visited Tasmania and the USA for the first time. This current work has been greatly influenced by those adventures. Before leaving I had produced some still lifes of my power tools with roses, thus Power Flower. In the US amongst so much great art I came across Andy Warhol’s “Drill”, 1961 that I had never known of before. I felt some synchronicity. ~ Stephen Nothling
