STEPHEN NOTHLING

Power Flower

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

Many Moods

Many Moods is an exploration of Minjerribah/North Stradbroke Island through the lived experiences of five local artists.

The collective of artists show, through their lenses, the moods of the Island through photography, woven sculptures, woven mats, baskets and gathered seeds.

Minjerribah is more than what is seen in the magazines, the visitor guides and weekender TV shows.  It is gentle, it is wild, it is welcoming, it is connectedness, it is family.  It is Quandamooka Country.

Opening event

Exhibition dates
19 November – 30 November 2019
