Untitled Show

Our Untitled Show features artworks that differ in style, medium, inspiration and affect. The only unifying quality is that they do not allow audiences to rely on a title for further instruction, and instead are open to interpretation.

Artists include Tanmaya Bingham, Robert Boynes, Jim Croke, Sybil Curtis, Todd Fuller, James Guppy, Waratah Lahy, Melinda Le Guay, Al Munro, Carol Murphy, Mylyn Nguyen, Catherine O’Donnell, Leslie Oliver, Lezlie Tilley, and Peter Tilley.

acrylic paint on plywood, 43 x 31cm

‘Untitled’ would appear to be the most common name attributed to a work of art. Despite the word denoting nothingness, the power of the untitled work is that it has the ability to express the opposite. Artists usually name works to convey something further about the piece to an audience, whether that is a feeling, a description, or a nod to its inspiration. An untitled work, on the other hand, asks the audience to think and question a little more in order to uncover meaning.

The works in this exhibition will differ in style, medium, inspiration and affect. The only unifying quality will be that the works do not allow audiences to rely on a title for further instruction and will instead be entirely open to interpretation.

 

October 2014 Exhibitions

▶ AL MUNRO, Systems of the Infinite
“Systems of the Infinite continues my interest in pattern systems and their relationship to the natural world. I draw on both traditional Japanese patterning and scientific visualisations to explore the mapping and cataloguing of nature.”

munro2014show

▶ TANMAYA BINGHAM, English Tea Party…gone wrong
“English Tea Party…gone wrong is an installation that typifies an ongoing epidemic plaguing Great Britain; TEA, the most sought after narcotic on the British market, and the drug of choice in the United Kingdom since the 18th century.”

bingham2014show

▶ DANIEL CONNELL, Night Light in Black Box Projects
“The project captures the ability of indicator and stand-by lights to signify and recall space. Standby lights can be abstracted into navigation points in order for an individual to recognise familiar spaces when nothing else can be seen.”
