Exhibition Text

The Review 2020 is primarily a conversation about the landscape, the marks and signs of mankind in it. It reaches into space with the night sky works of John Edgar, into the iconic and pestilent with Paul Dibble, the mysterious contrasts of Garry Currin, the rituals of Susanne Kerr, and Paul McLachlan takes us back in time in a dialogue about culture and war.

The exhibition features distinctive works by Dick Frizzell including the metaphoric Burnt Stump (1999) standing as a powerful critique and symbol of how nature is harnessed on almost every farm. Neil Frazer brings us winter, the scale and menace of the Southern Alps. Natchez Hudson (exhibiting with the gallery for the first time) contradicts, interferes and recomposes, introducing visual devices drawn from the lexicon of minimalist abstraction, further invigorated by medium contrasts and image dislocations.
