Taking landscape as a common point of departure each artist in Aesthetic Uncertainties uses the medium of paint to express something innately personal: an experience, a journey, a memory. Artists David Collins, Madeleine Cruise, Ondine Seabrook and Zuza Zochowski invite us to look through their subjective observations to comprehend their experiences of ‘place’ and to see something subtle, precious and ephemeral in the context of a busy contemporary world.
“I am interested in the vagaries of abstract painting and the tension between what the artist chooses to obscure and reveal in their work. The way artists pass the familiar through abstract filters to diffuse imagery - and how the viewer wishes to understand the intangible to reveal something recognisable. However, not all abstract painting is based on the dissemination of imagery and in this exhibition we unravel the works of four Australian painters with idiosyncratic sensibilities.” Curator Zara Collins
