▶ WARATAH LAHY, Not far from the truth
“My current work explores ideas of truth and distortion of memory. I focus on imagery which suggests a narrative, such as the open door, the empty room and the mirror, as well as looking for pattern, colour and repetition.”

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.

‘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.
