BOILING POINT, The Third Quarter
Exhibition opening Friday Jan 24, 6 - 9pm.
Pink Agnes, 2020 is part of an ongoing body of work where medium and support are combined through a practice of threading. Paying homage to the American abstractionist Agnes Martin, this work connects specifically with the inward-ness and silence of a painting. With its closed, adrift shapes and undeviating stitching, the work is a response to the heartbreak of the many Australians affected by the current environmental catastrophe.

Mindful Trace, Queensland Children's Hospital
Influenced by a sense of place, community and the Queensland Children’s Hospital Oncology Walkway, 'Mindful Trace' is a metaphor for the important role of the walkway in the lives of children undergoing oncology treatment. Using abstract forms of enlarged gestural brushstrokes, this design encourages feelings of freedom and mindfulness. The work records playful marks from artist’s studio, which are then transformed into an expressive composition along the walkway. Each gestural mark connects the artist with the patient community through mindfulness and mark making.
