Grace Cossington Smith Gallery, Abbotsford, Sydney with Kathy Boyle, Anthea Boesenberg and Gary Shinfield July / August 2022
This exhibition was about four artists, two Australian and two New Zealanders, who through their work connected with land and place, with histories, geologies and memories, as a means of dealing with the dilemmas of change. Whether permanent or precarious, personal or political, poetic or polemic, we solicited form and material to put a stake in the ground. At this moment, we say, “We stand with a view of a place, or this place, capturing the reverberations of ‘now’ as a record and perhaps as a way to step forward”. With an established practice in printmaking and working on paper, we have each developed our ideas in relation to processes of change overtime, tracing a path through spaces affected by ever-present forces of accretion and abrasion, around us and within.
