Lezlie Tilley extracts fragments of the infinite in her exhibition Simple Beauty, which contemplates the presence and absence of space within tessellating patterns. Each work exists as an individual and as part of a sequence that visualises the selected honeycomb segments in various forms including hand-coloured outlines or internal shapes, meticulous organic patterns inserted into cut-outs and perspex wall-mounted sculptures that add depth and shadow to the repetitious formations.
Responding to the imagery and aesthetic of the street, Robert Boynes’ exhibition Concrete Music emits a contemporary urban vibe. Boynes has extracted the neon colours that appear on pole posters, signage and in everyday fashion as a visually defining aspect of this exhibition that radiates from the images with vivid luminescence. This experimentation with fluorescent pink, orange, green and yellow adds to his signature use of shadows, layers of texture and imagery, the urban landscape and figures from the street.
Providing an authentic Fluxus experience at Brenda May Gallery, curator Akky van Ogtrop’s OnGOING GaGa SaGa includes the Fluxus-inspired works of many legendary artists, peace activists and musicians including Yoko Ono, Ben Vautier, George Maciunus, Dick Higgins, John Cage, Dieter Roth and Alison Knowles. Embracing the inclusive and anti-bourgeois philosophy of the Fluxus manifesto, the exhibition includes a digitally documented Zine-inspired Fluxus Box project.
