 Landscaping brings together the work of seven artists: Amala Groom, Kim Mahood, Nicole Monks, Katya Petetskaya, Douglas Schofield, Peter Sharp and Kristel Smits. Normally understood as a process whereby land is physically modified according to an aesthetic schema, landscaping, in this exhibition, becomes a way of seeing, being and responding. The aim is to bring a variety of perspectives into a dialogue, whether they are driven by formal considerations and/or political and cultural imperatives.

Perforated colour-forms and flow formations. Recent paintings.

These experiments with organic form and colour come from interactions with some of the natural phenomena at Cape Banks and Cruwee Cove in Botany Bay, from fungus growing in the bush to the contents of rockpools and the perforations created by the weathering of rocks.


Jodi Woodward

Matter(ed) Memory

“Our present is the materiality of our life, it is unique for each moment of duration.” (Bergson, H. 1911)

The physicality and alchemy of this drawing investigation, uses steel and paper to contest the delicate and volatile relationship between the two mediums. Drawn with plasma and molten ash this performative record evidences time, chance and endurance, challenging notions of survival and wholeness.


Rosie Thomas

What am I doing? Why are you here?

Time is problematic. It is a measurement of distance. A non-solid that fills a space. What am I doing? Why are you here? proposes a disorientation of ones self in a non-space. Here the artist intersects the real and the invented and invites her audience to be actively self-reflexive. The artist negotiates the moments of failure associated an unsustainable and only partially accessible poetic time-associated materiality.
