Exhibition

Ian Wood Retrospective

Ian Wood

May 1 – June 30, 2021

Ian’s careful use of colour together with his attention to detail, create works of deliberate intricacy. Colours intertwine for a gentle or tumultuous ride into places where it seems, nothing stands still.
His unique affinity with colour, texture and design was birthed during his career as a successful interior designer. For more than three decades, Ian completed many commercial and residential projects and also designed furniture, lighting, fabrics and floor coverings.
With his art, the colours, whether rich and vibrant or soft and subtle, produce an explorable texture of great depth and energy. These inspirational works can be bold and adventurous, mellow and comforting or interweave a combination of the gentle with the dramatic.
Ian began his journey in fine art in 2002 and held his first exhibition in Melbourne in 2004. He is also an accomplished writer, poet and has a passion for music.
His art is inspired by the unique colours and ancient textures of Australia.

Exhibition

MOUNTAIN ASH – STANDING TALL

Christine Goerner

July 3 – August 31, 2021

This exhibition celebrates the majesty of the forest, created by devastation and regeneration, but still standing tall. Rich in texture and detail, these limited-edition photographic works capture the distinct hatched patterns created by thousands of extremely tall, bare Mountain Ash trees around Marysville. Each photograph explores the forest at different times, creating various interpretations of the multi-layered, textural patterns in these hauntingly beautiful and mystical landscapes. This is the latest series by Christine Goerner, an award-winning, emerging photographic artist, based in Melbourne–who hopes to encourage you to discover the detail and see the beauty in this magnificent landscape.

When: July 3 – August 31, 2021
Opening: Saturday July 3 @ 2PM
