Thea Katauskas – Green Space @ M16 Artspace
Bold and full shadows are the rich Canberra suburban paintings created by Thea Katauskas. The inner suburbs of Canberra have a distinctive look – the trees the housing, the curvey streets all combine to create that unique look.
Below are a sample of her works and the gallery sheet.

In chatting with Sholto Morton at the opening I got an insight into his approach in creating his rich tapestries of painted intricassy. Standing in front of these the mind goes from thoughts of Persian carpets to Hindu tapestries but those references are not the same as these complex intriguing works of careful construction and beautiful choices of colour.
Some pics below (Do not do these works justice) and gallery materials

The age of meaninglessness has ended – Art, Empirical and Ideal is the title of the exhibition of work by James Rowell at M16 Artspace. The works are a set of texture rich small paintings mainly in colour pairs that combine vibrant colour with occasional bands of stenciled words inbedded in the paint surface.
There is gallery material and sample pics below.

Ella Whateley has exhibited a single painting of varied coloured vertical stripes in the space normally allocated to video creations. Her painting is interestingly lit from behind but the canvas is not translucent so the effect is basically a halo effect. There are religious meditation aspects in the construction at the back. The picture and the gallery material is below.
