Phillip Piperides: Images

May 29 - June 12

Phillip Piperides, Spring, 2020. Bronze, 53 x 57 x 26cm. Courtesy: the artist and Anthea Polson Art, QLD.

A classical, timeless serenity imbues the sculptures Phillip Piperides creates. ‘More than naturalistic representations, my work is about capturing moments which occupy a space in time,’ he imparts. The title of the exhibition, Images, refers to musings and perceptions personified into 3D form. Understanding the unclothed figure as a ‘landscape’ of soft undulations, Piperides searches for a nuance in a live model’s pose that will evoke the essence of his subject. At the outset of his career, Piperides noted the absence of foundries capable of casting bronze sculptures in Australia. During the 80’s he thus traveled to Greece and Italy to investigate the casting techniques of the great masters. Returning to Brisbane he established the Perides Art Foundry and shared the complex processes he’d learned abroad. In 1989 he was awarded the Churchill Fellowship. The grant enabled him to undertake further study in the USA, Canada and England where he extensively explored contemporary methods of monumental casting.

Opening Details: Saturday, May 29, 4-6pm at 29 Tedder Avenue, Main Beach
