'Rhythm Sequence' is the first career survey of Australian artist Gemma Smith. The exhibition traces the development of Smith’s practice since 2003 and its experimentation with the language of painting. It celebrates Smith’s reworking of abstract codes and styles, as well as the testing of colour and form, pictorial depth and formal and improvised gestures.
Multidisciplinary designers Elliott Bryce Foulkes and Maria Smit draw on a collaborative working process to explore the practice of graphic design within the museum.
The work of Nicholas Aloisio-Shearer considers the field of image production surrounding video games. Focusing on the culture of hacking and “modding”, it examines the production of fan-art and its appropriation of models and image assets from games.
When Playing on Synthetic Grass, we are in our element, in the playground, the artificial space that looks nothing like the real world, but is designed to be safe. A space for experimentation, learning and growth. We don't work, we play, and we don't make works, we make games. Playing on Synthetic Grass brings us back to our childhood, the playgrounds, the playpens and the various play things.
Compositive investigates the potential in harvesting wasted time, utilising this dormant energy to produce new outcomes. A collaborative exercise with several thousand worms and some of my unknown fellow painting students, Compositive used discarded paintings from bins on campus and from my own personal archive to imagine a future without failure - or at least where success can be salvaged.
