Space Betwixt, a group exhibition curated by Alexandra Winters, explores the concept of gaps in information, the places of transition and the blank spaces at the edges of existing forms. The works in the exhibition act as the visual representation of this concept — each of the four artists works in shapes and in the spaces between shapes, creating modernist-influenced geometric forms.
Genevieve Felix Reynolds’ paintings are created from intersections of complex geometric shapes, with tonal colours giving the appearance of creased paper, or unfolded origami. In a similar fashion, Andy Harwood layers simple triangles and rectangles into larger forms, transforming them into tangible, almost sculptural objects. Christian Flynn’s work is inspired by a contemporary expression of modernism that references science and technology, with a bold approach that mixes organic forms and severe, hard-edged spikes of colour, while Freda Davies explores the shapes around us, recreating the simple geometry of the urban landscape.
Space Betwixt exhibits in the Brisbane Powerhouse Foyer spaces from October 7 to November 1.
