Tuesdays – Saturdays 10:00am – 4:00pm
ZOË FITZHERBERT | TIDAL
TIDAL is the release of intense creative energy built up over 3.5 months of isolation in rural NSW. Formerly creating solely expressive-realist works in charcoal, the tensions of isolation urged Zoë to pivot into mixed-media abstract expressionism upon her return to Hobart.
TIDAL embraces the intense oscillations the artist has experienced since the onset of the pandemic, allowing the unknown to free her artistically, rather than paralyse. Her works are for the main part warm and whimsical, but some channel a darker ferocity. The process and the result are energetic and life-affirming.
ANDREW WILSON | SYNTH
Inspired by the cinematic melancholy of American photographer Gergory Crewsdon, and Australian novelist Kate Forsyth’s work on the dark and violent origins of fairy tales, SYNTH is a series of portraits framing the digital disruption of human relationships.
MATTHEW SULLIVAN | VERGE
Matthew has been working on ways to convey the sense he feels of the Tasmanian bush and his latest work VERGE continues that exploration. He feels the ancient, brooding presence of its wilds, and is particularly drawn to intersections with the encroaching works of humanity.
