beyond the field invitation

beyond the field invitation

Maria Gorton, Matthew Allen and Marisa Purcell first met at Sydney College of the Arts in 2006 when undergoing their Masters of Visual Arts under the supervision of Lindy Lee. The artists shared a fascination with colour field painting, the sublime and the philosophy of nonduality. Their paintings unite in this exhibition through an exploration of colour and space, light and dark, memory and time.

Maria Gorton, Matthew Allen and Marisa Purcellʼs common language is the unknown. As a musician plucks sounds from the aether and a writer groups words from an endless pool – these painters layer colour and form from an infinite field of connections. Rarely pre-determined, the paintings culminate in paintings that trace the process of discovery itself.

Visitors to this exhibition will be entranced by large abstract and minimal paintings that work to engage the viewer on both emotional and physical levels. Intense colour sit alongside the deepest shades and seem to suspend time allowing the viewer to move quietly into a suspended reality.

Until 24 October at Bondi Pavilion Gallery, Bondi Pavilion, Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach – open daily from 10am until 5pm
