Abstraction and abstracted images plays a large part in my work. The idea of a “suggestion” or “reference” is certainly entertained and played upon.
This from 1986 is no exception. Collaging and drawing to create a suggested landscape…or is it? What do you find in there? Feel free, it’s OK to see and feel other ideas and thoughts about what the work might be about. Asking questions and thinking about possibilities is good and welcomed.
As with most contemporary art…you might not connect at first but keep thinking, keep trying.
Great conversation last night at the Art Gallery New South Wales for the NUDE exhibition. Kathy Lette interviewed by Fenella Kernebone. Of course irreverent and controversial but also humorous and to the bone.
References to the lack of male nudes in art galleries generally and the over representation of female nudes in art but the under -representation of female artists.

The exhibition titled, provocatively NUDE has been selected from the Tate Gallery in the UK.
