Mark making, ambiguous shapes, expressive lines, colours bright and subdued are all suggestive clues to an abstract artist’s exploration of its subject matter. In a world where we sometimes find ourselves surrounded by anxiety and pressure, Abstract Art can symbolise an escape. One might fall between the shapes and marks as they pull and retract from each other, creating a tension, a depth.
Tangible, emotive, illusive and bold, this suggestive art form can leave the viewer in charge of what they wish to see.
Abstraction is an exhibition that features works from the Port Macquarie-Hastings Council Art Collection, featuring artist such as Val Allen, Marion Borgelt, Gavin Crichton and many more. Abstraction is one of two main themes that narrates the collection, the other being Landscape.
