M16 ARTSPACE has three new exhibitions opening today.In Dörte Conroy’s “Fold,” it has been the “impartial nature of MDF” that has determined the geometric shapes and forms and bold colour she uses.
Conroy was born in Hamburg, Germany and moved to Australia 1958, living and working in Canberra, where she has held and participated in many solo and group exhibitions. Her work is held at Artbank, as well as in private collections.
In “Something Familiar,” S.A. Adair & Tracey Sarsfield utilise sculpture, installation and drawing to create a combined body of work, where each artist explores connections in various ways.
Adair’s work is derived from abstraction and Sarsfield’s is representational, but both use the body as a common point of reference, investigating line as it shifts from two-dimensional surface to three-dimensional sphere, creating interplay between surface and space.In “Echoes,” Melbourne mixed media artist Andy Thomas explores contemporary themes with a unique fusion of nature and technology. Organically sculpted wood is illuminated with electricity and voices of nature are transformed into 3D interpretations, conveying nature’s plight in this changing world. 3 new exhibitions at M16, 21 Blaxland Crescent Griffith: Fold (Dörte Conroy); Something Familiar (S.A. Adair & Tracey Sarsfield) and Echoes (Andy Thomas), October 24 to November 10, noon-5pm, Wednesday – Sunday. Opening Event today, Thursday, October 24, at 6pm, all welcome.
