UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS

Laurent Rivory
Ferrophilia

6 August – 30 August 2020 

Steel is often described as being cold, hard and grey and is not normally associated with subjects such as life, dance and the female form.  In Ferrophilia, emerging sculptor Laurent Rivory uses the sumptuousness of waxed steel to explore these and other diverse subjects. Ferrophilia represents a collision between Cubist tendencies, a sensitivity to the provenance and innate aesthetics of  scrap steel, a soupçon of humour and Laurent Rivory’s commitment to an environmentally sustainable art practice.

Marlene Jones
The Beauty of Sepia

6 August – 30 August 2020

The Beauty of Sepia showcases the beauty and soul within our natural world by removing colour and inviting closer interaction. Artist Marlene Jones uses sepia tones only, in a unique style of scumbling in oil paint, to draw the viewer in. It is Jones’ intention that by using this approach the viewer will experience and appreciate the paintings with a completely new perspective in consideration of our impact within the world and the importance of our coexistence.

Jean-Luc Batchelor
Digital Interplay

6 August – 30 August 2020

Digital Interplay experiments with a combination of traditional and contemporary technologies to produce captivating works. In response to the Digital Ecologies Lab run by TOOLO in partnership with the Blue Mountains City Council, Jean-Luc Batchelor explores the interpretation and display of data in creative works – pushing technology into mediums rarely partnered. The interplay and intertwining of digital art and traditional styles are inseparable – whether pieces are made by machines, communicated through machines, technologies’ presence is unavoidable. Digital Interplay creates a space where the interaction between art and technology is as overt in its display as it is in its formation.
