Wherever gesture and effect consciously appear in painting, they testify not only to non-verbal communication. If the image is not formally confined to a plane, gestures also embed it in physical space, actively and organically, allowing the perception of depth and perspective.
However, they no longer cultivate illusionistic representations of space. Instead, impressed by radical changes, whether stylised, symbolic or formal, he strives to completely eliminate illusionistic representation in abstract and constructive art. This trend goes hand in hand with the increasingly clear emphasis on the means of artistic expression, i.e. the emancipation of material and colour from their pictorial functions.
Thus, some paintings do not depict bodies, but are themselves 'bodies' that merge with the paint into an organic whole. Gestures do not function 'narratively' in the work, but belong to the physical being itself as an expression of material existence or perspective depth.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
