WHITE

September 7, 2016 - September 19, 2016

An exploration of non-colour by seven recent graduates of Sydney’s National Art School: Kirsten Drewes, Jan Handel, Emma Kirby, Michelle Le Dain, Melinda Marshman, Elizabeth Rankin and Helen Redmond.

White is the achromatic, the colour without a hue. It is the light produced by the streaming of the spectrum of colours – the nothing produced by the all.

The multiplicity of white from absolute to innuendo is the subject that draws together seven recent alumni of the National Art School. Informed by each artists’ different background experiences, the processes and interpretations of this contradictory colour are expectedly diverse: from Drewes’ felted body sculpture, Le Dain’s playful cotton balls and Handel’s wax and paper mourning vials to Marshman’s poetic Alpine snowscapes, Kirby’s material alchemy, Redmond’s architectural distillations of light and a Hitchcock-twist on the virginal wedding dress by Elizabeth Rankin. Unified by the common aesthetic of white, the exhibition celebrates seven intensely personal interpretations of the spectrum’s most enigmatic non-colour.

OPENING: Wednesday 7 September, 2016, 6-8pm
HOURS: Wed – Sat 12-6pm,  Sun 12-4pm, or by appointment
