We have a few new pieces in our stockroom by two of our Represented Artists. ‘Warp 6‘ is from a series by Melinda Le Guay that is strongly based in process and repetition. The work embellishes, manipulates and deconstructs the surface of fragile and translucent paper.
In the new paintings ‘Licorace allsorts‘ and ‘Harlequin‘, Lezlie Tilley returns to her earlier considerations of the geometric patternation in quilting. Both practices speak strongly to traditional woman’s work and handicrafts; Le Guay’s through the use of hand-stitiching and Tilley’s through her visual aesthetic.
Waratah Lahy, Melinda Le Guay, Al Munro and Mylyn Nguyen have been curated into the group exhibition Kitchenalia at Goulburn Regional Art Gallery. The show, on view from 28 August until the 11 October, features artists who use kitchen-related materials and subject matter within their practice. Included in the exhibition are the delicately painted glasses by Waratah Lahy, an assemblage of patty-pans by Melinda Le Guay, Al Munro’s crochet bottles and Mylyn Nguyen’s tiny tableaux contained within spoons and vessels.
