JENNY REDDIN

Reddin’s brushless paintings are informed by thoughtful engagements with nature. They therefore recall what is familiar, while making us aware of a perpetual process of dissolution, and as they slide obliquely into deepening states of abstraction, they nonetheless appear to reveal the patterned tracery of their past. By utilising mirroring effects achieved through symmetrical blotting, and overlaying this with a viscous blend of solvent, pigment and medium, each suspended form blooms forth with an inbuilt power to play on our perceptions. As with Rorschach inkblots, pareidolia ensues, leaving viewers free to discover faces, bodies, geographical features and other meaningful forms.

AMANDA PAGE

Page’s art develops through observing transformative processes in natural systems, such as weather patterns, erosion, interactions between organisms, organic metamorphoses, and overarching cycles of growth and decay. This inevitably involves complex energy exchanges which precipitate the breakdown of substances into simpler material forms. In capturing and recording the visible effects of these processes and the consequent changes of state in materials, Page creates works about change as a universal condition that connects all matter, while drawing us into narratives around fragility, loss, impermanence, and the interaction of invisible forces.

 BEING AND IMAGINATION

JO CARROLL

14 MAY — 19 JUNE
WINERY VIEWING GALLERY | ENTRY IS FREE
Intuitive abstract artist Jo Carroll creates from a space of nothingness, beyond preconceived ideas and compositional plans.
Carroll’s imagery is calming, atmospheric and ethereal, drawing viewers into transcendent states of being and becoming. Clouds, nebulae, otherworldly landscapes, alluring bodies of water, and the exalting glow of refracted light are all recurring themes.
In showing the imagination a reflection of itself, these works evoke spaces for tranquillity, reflection, rebalance and revitalisation.
Jo Carroll,  Aqua Odyssey, acrylic on ultra-fine canvas framed in Tasmanian Oak, 123 x 197 cm
