Join us next Wednesday 14 April from 6 – 8 pm, for the opening celebration of Fiona Lowry’s exhibition I loved you yesterday.
In her essay for the exhibition Wilderness, Balnaves contemporary: painting, currently at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Natasha Bullock writes of Fiona Lowry’s oeuvre:
“This is part of the paradox of her work – it is as much about formal qualities and beauty as it is about the evocation of impending doom or unease. Indeed there is a seductive weightlessness to the effervescent application of paint that belies the paintings’ thornier content…..the viewer’s vision shudders across the surface: the point of focus staggered over the painting, denying a single point of perspective and a conventional reading of foreground and background. Here, the historical specificities associated with the term landscape slide into the paradigm of place, a broad concept accommodating also nuance and imperceptibility. In the place of Lowry’s pictures narrative is subverted and the optical field oscillates, infused with a melancholy air that is often erotically charged.”
