Imants Tillers: The Path Itself

September 7 - September 28

Imants Tillers, Amygdala Hijack, 2019. Synthetic polymer paint, gouache on 64 canvas boards, nos. 108378 – 108441, 204 x 285cm. Courtesy: the artist and Roslyn Oxley9, Sydney. 

 

Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents new works by Imants Tillers in The Path Itself, which coincides with the gallery’s presentation at Sydney Contemporary 2019. The Path Itself is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Sydney following his major retrospective Journey in Nowhere at the Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga in 2018.

Tillers is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary painters whose practice spans four decades. Since 1981 Tillers has used his signature canvas boards to explore themes relevant to contemporary culture, from the centre/periphery debates of the 1980s to the effects of migration, displacement and diaspora. Most recently his paintings have been concerned with place, locality and evocations of landscape.

On multiple panels, Tillers juxtaposes layers of imagery and text drawn from a great many sources of influence and inspiration. The result is a convergence of ideas and a multiplicity of references that cite art – including other artists’ work – history, literature, politics, society and the artist’s personal history.

 

Exhibition opens: 4–6pm Saturday 7 September 2019
