Adventures in Abstract Painting
With James Lawrence
8 weeks, Thu mornings
13 February – 2 April
This ever-popular term class explores abstract painting concepts and techniques utilising acrylic paints, gels and additives.
Robert George’s work is typified by his love of surrealist cinema, the materiality of film and a constant exploration of the human condition. George’s deliberate multi-perspective approach works against the binary logic of what is real or imagined, privileging a plurality of events unfolding at any one moment to destabilise the idea of a single logic. The concept of ‘cinema time’ and ‘dream time’ become potential devices to think through time from an indigenous position, opening out what it means to approach death, and what it might mean to remember.
