James Makin Gallery presents Antonia Perricone-Mrljak‘s highly anticipated major solo exhibition, Harvest Day Night. In this latest body of work, Perricone-Mrljak traces the line of her mark-making in a rich narrative of harvest. Like her practice, harvest is tied to repetition and process; the paintings in this body of work clearly delineate the passage of time and labour. In colour, works move from day to night, interspersed with rich verdant compositions – the harvest. Upon the canvas, Perricone-Mrljak’s emphatic line-making speak to the labour and repetition that leads to growth. For the artist, the harvest is a heady metaphor, not only of growth, but of process and memory. Ancient practices passed down through generations and personal journeys through life – in each there is a necessary balance between the light and the dark, as well as the rhythm of ongoing movement and labor. The harvest is a historical and universal act of survival.
Opening event: Saturday 30 October, 2 – 4pm.
