Spaces in Between explores the world of two of Australia’s most accomplished artists, both of whom have been developing their art over the last 50 years. While both King and Coventry’s art is abstract and at first glance seems very different, they are in fact very close in their approach the art making; both responding to light and space.
King is known for her sculptures made from waxed and painted steel, which she exploits to its full potential to create fluid and lyrical works that contradict our expectations of this material.
Coventry’s work explores relationships between light, spatiality and colour, using paint and composition to create vibrant surfaces that change in response to different light and angles of view.
