May Space is proud to present a new solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Sydney artist, Peta Minnici.

My current body of work was inspired by my month long residency at Bundanon, estate of the late artists’, Arthur and Yvonne Boyd. My proposal was to continue my exploration of perception through a series of paintings and drawings, based on its interiors and landscapes. Arriving late in the afternoon and unable to gain access to the locked homestead, I began peering through windows and photographing all I could see, eager for inspiration.

As a result, I experienced a paradigm shift. I inadvertently discovered that the glass allowed me to capture both the interior and the surrounding landscape in the one frame, as a play on reflections, with the mountains and trees fusing seamlessly with the architectural features of the interior. My drawings, based on window reflections, are formed intuitively over time using a technique of mark making, creating a blurring of focus and a slowing of viewing time, whilst in my paintings I aim to undo photographic representation by reducing the image into a series of shapes combined with the use of small brush strokes of tone and colour.
