Home@735 director Madeleine Preston has new sculptural works opening at Maunsell Wickes Gallery next Tuesday the 15th. Come along for drinks from 6-8pm at 19 Glenmore Road Paddington.
“…my new work uses Philip Guston’s later paintings, and specifically his pallette to create forms and groupings about the trouble we find ourselves in when we allow populism to succeed. The period Guston created his Nixon series in and the Watergate crisis has resonances with today’s political climate and with the workings of the current US administration. Using media traditionally associated with the domestic – textiles and ceramics – the commentary is not literal or loud. Instead the work acts as an interloper between the internal domestic world and the external one of world politics…”
Also showing works by Gerry Wedd, Bern Emmerichs, Jane McKenzie, Valerie Restrict & The Bankstown Koori Elders Group.
