Exhibition at Gallery H Bangkok Jul – Oct 2017

The exhibition at Gallery H, Bankok runs until October.  I have visited it each time and whenever I go I am still excited to see the sculptural piece and how it constantly changes within the space.  The sculpture is suspended from the ceiling which allows it to move, and the subtle shifts in light and the slow movement of air both contribute towards a shadow which plays on the floor and against the wall.  I have enjoyed the interaction of the paintings and the sculpture.

This visually exhilarating exhibition reveals the astounding contribution Australian women artists have made to abstract art. The exhibition shows a breathtaking passion for colour, shape and rhythm and a dedication to experimentation and conceptual innovation. The works in this exhibition use a remarkable range of media moving through painting, sculpture and applied arts and take audiences on a journey from the early 20th century through to the present day.
