Strange Arrangements: Abstract Prints from Rockhampton Art Gallery Collection
Rockhampton, Rockhampton Area

28 March - 15 June 2014

07 4936 8248


Since the 1970s Rockhampton Art Gallery has collected art from some of Australia's best-known painters - but unknown to many is their large collection of prints. This exhibition investigates raw expression, abstraction, colour and form in their print collection.

As the ultimate conclusion to modernist thought; abstractionists avoided the mimesis of western art in search of a pure art form that used a universal language. Further to this Australian artists drew on Aboriginal art - innately abstract in form with its common language of marks and rhythms.

At the junction of ancient and modern, Australian abstraction exploded in the 1970s - the decade on which this exhibition focuses. Come and experience their mysterious curves and textures; once more in the limelight.

Artists in Strange Arrangements include Alun Leach-Jones, Bill Meyer, David Aspden, Diana Davidson, David Rankin, John Peart and Victor Majzner.
