Belem Lett: Sundowner

November 27 - December 12

Belem Lett, Sundowner, 2021. Oil on aluminium composite panel, 153.5 x 151cm. Courtesy: the artist and James Makin Gallery, Melbourne.

Belem Lett’s paintings play with light and colour as inseparable aspects, and the artist considers the act of painting through the history of gestural abstraction. Individual works explore the surface and traditional constraints of painting, at times bouncing off its edges and returning inwards to explore the interior space, while at others zooming off the edge. There is an implicit physical momentum involved in Lett’s work: the push/pull, twists, the drag of the brush, the drip, the stop and start. Reduced to a surface and applied with a colour-loaded brush, his works imply a broader, limitless world of which we are only seeing a cropped section.⁠

Opening event: Saturday 27 November 2-4PM (RSVP: info@jamesmakingallery.com)⁠
