Group Exhibition: Abstraction

August 4, 2020 - August 30, 2020

Gavin Crichton, Blue Rivers (detail), 2011. Acrylic and mixed media on canvas, 136 x 152cm. Courtesy: the artist, Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Art Collection and Glasshouse Regional Gallery, Port Macquarie.

Mark making, ambiguous shapes, expressive lines, colours bright and subdued are all suggestive clues to an abstract artist’s exploration of its subject matter. In a world where we sometimes find ourselves surrounded by anxiety and pressure, abstract art can symbolise an escape. One might fall between the shapes and marks as they pull and retract from each other, creating a tension, a depth. Tangible, emotive, illusive and bold, this suggestive art form can leave the viewer in charge of what they wish to see.

Abstraction is an exhibition of works from the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Art Collection, featuring artists such as Val Allen, Marion Borgelt, Gavin Crichton and many more. Abstraction is one of two main themes that narrates the collection, the other being landscape.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures. You can also view the exhibition online here.
