In the domain of painting, the quest of the modernist avant-gardist has been to emphasise the material qualities of the paint that they work with. Refractions, a new group show at Kaleidoscope Gallery, challenges this faithfulness to one’s own material in contemporary abstraction and instead celebrates the changes that occurs in translating art through different processes and materials. Presenting works by emerging artists Akira Lander, Jan Rae, Kang Ning Wang, Ngoc Nguyen and Shireen Mussa, Refractions explores the ways that artists have come to experiment with not only the qualities of their craft but have embraced the transformations that occur between mediums to create ambitious abstract compositions.
Opening night on Friday 12th December 6 – 9pm
Exhibition will be showing until Sunday 21st December at Kaleidoscope Gallery, 30 O’Connor Street Chippendale 2008.
Wed – Fri : 2 – 6pm
