Abstract: Works from the Collection
Sat 8 July - Sun 3 September
8 JULY – 3 SEPTEMBER 2023
This selection of abstract art from Orange Regional Gallery’s growing permanent collection presents various artists whose work lies beyond a representational or realist approach.
Abstraction, or non-objective art, covers a broad spectrum, inviting us into diverse ways of looking. Artists Paul Selwood, David Serisier, Louise Tuckwell and Marion Borgelt work within geometric parameters or patterned systems to explore abstract possibilities with colour and form. Ana Pollak, Emily Kngwarreye, Ian Fairweather and Stan de Teliga reference the natural world more directly. Aida Tomescu, Ildiko Kovacs and Roy Jackson extend on the intuitive approach, building compositions that embody gesture and energy.
