Alex Seton’s sculptural practice resonates a profound dedication to the physical and conceptual agency of marble – his works exhibited internationally and throughout Australia. An exhibition of new work The Great Escape uses the landscape and the local material of the Wombeyan Caves and quarry as its central tenet. In a part comic-tragic tribute to the home of the material that sparked a lifetime’s fascination with marble carving and sculpture, Seton lays out recreations of places and moments from his obscure childhood memories.

An inquisitive and critical approach to his medium, its history and tradition at large, The Great Escape marks the first major solo showing of Seton’s work in Goulburn, close to his childhood home of Taralga.

Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Friday 7 February 2020
