Robin Wiltse - Altered Perceptions

Altered Perceptions explores the stories and narratives around the death of Rowan, the madness, the quest for healing and the altering effect it had on me and my perceptions of the natural world. As it was in his painted world, I too experienced some along with the deep crippling dread I found a new sense of who my daughter was, what her life meant. Held up by her strength and her etherial grace, we found so much magic in everything she was teaching us.

Vestibule

The images feel like ethereal encounters. Some appear like spirits or ghosts while others feel familiar yet unknown. Many characters exist as singular portraits living within a greater constellation of beings that transfer feelings into the surrounding space. These feelings create an emotional tapestry connecting the artwork to the viewer, the viewer to the space, and viewers to each other. Though the characters appear in physical form, it is less about the portraits and more about what is contained within them. Katie Green's exhibition will be in the Central Gallery from May 6th to August 12th.

Eros in the Landscape

Reid says that he paints from rather than on. His subject since the 1950s has included the figure. A transformative eros of man and/or woman combined with landscape came later but that is what he paints from. He says his arm knows what to paint more than his head does. He states in his memoir that he wants his work to look “unlaboured, clear, confident, controlled,”[2] and tries always for urgency and fluidity in the execution.

Tsuneko Kokubo's exhibition will be in the Reid Gallery from May 6th to August 12th.

Illuminated Collapse

Illuminated Collapse merges figure and ground to highlight human connection to the surrounding world. In these sculptures, unsettling dioramic scenes unfold on the surface of circular, wooden plinths. Anthropomorphic landscapes are engaged in dramatic acts of self-consumption and destruction, projecting a metaphorical End of Times narrative. Mirroring our own world through their miniature elements, the works reflect on contemporary consumption, industrial development, and inherent environmental degradation.

Context is Everything

Monique Martin creates gallery installations involving thousands of intricately screen-printed and hand cut paper objects. Meticulously detailed individual pieces merge into a larger whole; the sum is greater than the individual parts. In this exhibition, thousands of paper dandelions, entitled Context is Everything, coexist with Annus Mirabilis, a newer body of work depicting paper butterflies. There is no distinct line between the two works, the butterflies spill off of the walls and throughout the field of flowers across the gallery floor.

Cling

Cling considers satellite dishes installed on buildings for their formal similarities to barnacles growing on a rock; as barnacles encrust a rock, satellites encrust a building. Satellite dishes are notable for their purpose as sites of transmission between space satellites, personal electronic devices, and the sublime realm of the digital world; barnacles for their ability to colonize and grow on any available surface.

Traversing the line, with no fixed point

Briana Palmer gathers images, objects, and ideas from the everyday, exploring the intersections between the perception, experience, and social ideologies of her own cultural practices and upbringing. Traversing the line, with no fixed point unsettles our assumptions of place and belonging. The main component of the installation is the “Iron horse” – a railway system that runs through an installation of ephemera, nostalgic paraphernalia, and cultural artifacts.
