East Gallery

Over the last decade Brisbane based artist Jeanette Stok has been modifying traditional embroidery techniques for use with alternative materials. These non-textile materials allow her to create unusual patterns that are impossible with a needle and thread. They also encourage a reflection of the way identity and perspective is shaped through culture, adaptation and repetitive actions.

A Quiet Place

Keith Tubb

Sat 28 Aug

Foyer Gallery

The work in this exhibition was inspired by the artist's visits to the Botanic Garden in Booderee National Park. First visiting the garden around five years ago, he immediately felt a strong connection to the place. The atmosphere was very special and evoked many feelings, one of which was that childhood sense of wonder of being in a strange and magical place. The title refers not only to the physical place but also to that quiet place in the mind.

Unspoken Words is a series of figurative paintings and drawings which explore an emotional response to the female form and the landscape. An imagined narrative is entwined in the landscape and a recurring theme of animals, music, and women run through the works. The imaginary joins reality in this quirky, illustrative exhibition.

For Guy Warren personal experience and memory are vitally important, intertwining with subject matter across his works. Certain events and places had such strong impact that they appear constantly throughout the paintings, prints and drawings Warren has produced over the past six decades.
A canoeing trip down the Shoalhaven River Warren undertook in 1939, at the age of sixteen, and a block of land at the head of the Jamberoo valley on which Warren built a shed have both been integral to his practice. Images of the river, canoe and the ‘hut on the hill,’ all imbued with memories and fantasies, are a strong presence throughout his works and the complex overlapping of form found within the rainforest has impacted depth and patterning across his entire oeuvre.
