Cut out – Meredith Hughes and Naomi Souwer @ Belconnen Arts Centre

20 Oct – 12 Nov 2017

This is a small exhibition with nine works. Each piece is a composite of outline shapes and object shapes laid out on the wall. Each of the elements are cut from larger pieces and put on the wall as glue-backed paper. The papers are sometimes cut because of their rich patterned surface that when cut in outline shapes are striking in shape and colour. Other parts or the work are cut outs of flowers people and many other items taken from fabric or wall papers to create pictures and artworks of vivid colour and intriguing composition.

More details of this exhibition is on the BAC website page

Marilou Chagnaud – Papiers Flottants @ ANU School of Art Foyer Gallery

10-21 Oct 2017

Some exhibitions are small but of a class that is quite memorable, The work of Marilou Chagnaud at the ANU School of Art Foyer Gallery are remarkable. There are five geometric designs in black and white that almost move as you walk by. There is a timber frame that is hung with wonderful curved line prints on white paper hanging in rows. When you move the frame a bit the sheets move in a way that looks like wonderful ocean wave. There is a folded set of curved lined sheets woven into a spring loaded fan on the floor. Each of the elements of this exhibition are beautiful.
