Paint and gesture are as much the subject here as the observed world. Together they signal a (re)embrace of slippages between abstraction’s flatness and illusionistic depth. Paint becomes a barrier, matrix or a screen – a layering of visual static through the partial obliteration of ‘image’ - as well as its more mutable character in the play of describing form.
Andrew Browne lives and works in Melbourne. This is his fifth solo exhibition at Tolarno Galleries.
