AMBER WALLIS AT UNIVERSITY OF THE SUNSHINE COAST ART GALLERY

Amber Wallis's work has been included in a group exhibition at USC Art Gallery

Taking its title from the poetry of Sappho, Come Close is an exhibition of the work of Leonard Brown, Christian Flynn, Ian Friend, Gordon Shepherdson, Amber Wallis and Judith Wright.

Placed together, the artwork of these six artists is as cohesive as it is distinct. This cohesiveness comes from a shared commitment to the materiality of process and to working with the tensions of form and formlessness. Building through and out of this process the resulting artworks are objects for contemplation that reveal something about the poetics of experience.

John combines colour and pattern in precise relationships heightening the awareness of the phenomenon of perception. Looking at Aslanidis work becomes intensely physical as the composition bounces and the viewer’s gaze rebounds, reminiscent of the process when engaging with the intensity of tennis, as a player or viewer.
