541 Art Space presents the work of painter Robert Ewing in the exhibition, Change.
The local bushland and farming areas of Pinjarra and the Darling Range of Western Australia remain the primary source of content referenced within Ewing’s work.
Intimate places within this environ are observed and studied to formulate multi-faceted landscape compositions. Ewing combines personal iconographies with contrasting pictorial elements, inviting us to explore a fractured, disrupted landscape shaped by implied and natural activity.
The artworks present an expansive interpretation of a landscape/garden setting, evoking an atmosphere of intrigue and provide a doorway to a tantalisingly familiar yet alien place. His highly stylised use of line, colour and light combine to create a place of contrasting visual elements, a place of dramatic undertones, where the real and imagined exist within a landscape of expectation and uncertainty.
The artworks are manifestations of an evocative place, inhabited and isolated, where the vision of the garden remains beautiful and serene, a place somewhere between our memory and imaginings.
Opening: Friday 4 October 2019.
