Join us to celebrate the opening of two new exhibitions: Intimate Immensity by Ian Friend and Littoralis by Anita Holtsclaw. The event will begin with a special talk with artist Anita Holtsclaw, followed by the official opening from 5pm.
Intimate Immensity brings together works by Ian Friend created over the past five years. Friend is best known for his evocative works on paper and fascination for the alchemy of materials. The exhibition title is from Gaston Bachelard’s The Poetics of Space; a seminal text on architecture that looks at poetry, art, and consciousness itself to examine the domestic places that shape and hold dreams and memories.
Littoralis is the Latin term for the seashore and half the scientific name of the endemic native Australian Sheoak tree: Allocasurina littoralis. From their roots deeply embedded into the sand to the whistling of the wind through their fronds, through Littoralis artist Anita Holtsclaw explores concepts of recollection, memory, simulation, and sight engendered by the framing of the coastal landscape.
