Lesley Dumbrell – Thrum

Spanning more than five decades of Lesley Dumbrell’s practice, this exhibition presents a selection of paintings and works on paper as well as recent forays into sculpture that demonstrate Dumbrell’s unique abstract language, which probes the nuances of colour, rhythm and visual perception.

Lesley Dumbrell: Thrum brings together works ranging from the experimental and unfinished to the highly realised and refined, and includes the joyous Spangle 1977, the first work by Lesley Dumbrell acquired by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, in 1979, as well as the magnificent Solstice 1974, an exceptional optical work that is a firm visitor favourite. Major works from private and public collections around Australia will also feature in both the exhibition and its accompanying richly illustrated publication, including her landmark paintings February 1976 (National Gallery of Australia) and Tramontana 1984 (National Gallery of Victoria).
