To Here from Eternity

“To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere.” Giorgio de Chirico (1888-1978)

This exhibition included 20 small works on paper bringing together personal yet seemingly universal narratives that appear from the depths of the human psyche. These paintings emerge by free visual association being ignited through the act of painting.

In the catalogue essay, Melbourne-based curator and academic Dr Daman Smith notes 'These are not images of the incidents of daily life, though such occurrences are by no means excluded as possibilities, but something that is vastly old and lingering in our consciousness, and through which we might connect with histories that are deeper than our immediate experience of time'.
