“We are exposed to so many colours through the mass media bombardment of visual imagery and advertising that the connection between seeing and experience is often overlooked. These paintings are about taking a moment to explore ‘seeing’: a perceptual encounter, a visual fantasy trip which detaches itself from expectation. Colour, line and form negotiate with one another and funnel one’s vision into a multitude of equally competing directions. The eye is at once repelled and intrigued. Together, the works are not just a collection of objects, but a visual and perceptual experience – Paula Garrard.”
Exhibiting at Regional Art Space – 11 July – 6 September, Dubbo Regional Gallery – The Armati Bequest, Western Plains Cultural Centre.
