Shameless Self Promotion

Publicity Blurb for Re-Collection

The Collective are a group of seven artists who also are linked by their professional contributions to the museum profession. In this, their second exhibition together, they explore ideas of time, permanence and memory through a range of media including painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture and installation.

Sarah Edwards tackles notions of status and reverence through the re-presentation of discarded objects, re-establishing their permanent place in memory. Ben Healley photographically captures the fleeting, forgotten moments of a sleeping city, while Colleen Boyle examines the relationship between time and representation via the heavens. Rod Gray stirs up the memory of our subconscious with his paintings of dreamlike landscapes, whilst Lee-Anne Raymond depicts concepts of time and space via illusion and myth. Brendon Taylor tends a sculptural hand to our fragmented, personal memories, while Sarah Parker toys with ideas of transfiguring the ordinary, re-presenting it as a fragile ceramic object.

Come along to the opening at Red Gallery Sept 1st 6-8pm

The Collective will exhibit again soon

Stay tuned for more news on the next exhibition titled Recollection.
A themed exhibition around Time and Museological concepts...hmmm the intrigue and mystery of it!
The group all met at Red Gallery in Fitzroy Nth today to discuss and suss out the space more and lay down our initial strategic plan.
We intend a more defined thematic showing this time which will well suit the space. Two twin facing skylights provide a natural light cast and an interesting architectural detail. There are nooks as well as good flowing space to accommodate all styles - very flexible.
more later...
