Tim Melville Gallery presents a small suite of paintings by Pete Bossley in the Office Gallery.
The artist-architect Bossley writes: “About 25 years ago I began to see painting as a serious exploration for its own sake … colour, form, shape, narrative. The compositional possibilities of abstraction – disassociated from the architectural imperative, where every line you draw represents a material or an element of a building – demand a different rigour. As Pat Hanly used to tell my cohort of architecture students in our weekly drawing classes, ‘Squint to discover the essence’. The small group of works [were made] over 25 years and represent my constant battle to balance limited time against the demands of architecture and my ongoing enthusiasm for painting.”
