Congratulations to the curator, Daniel Mudie Cunningham, who has devoted the entire gallery space to a survey show of the work of Bundeena artist, Ildiko Kovacs spanning 30 years.
This is a journey through abstraction. Large works contained within their frame represent the artists responses to her world through line, colour, and mark making. These are bold, energetic and gestural works, some of which are intense in colour while others are more layered with short hand type mark making. In 2009 the paint roller replaced the paintbrush and works became more intuitive and conceptual.
Team this visit with a coffee at the cafe. We are very lucky to have this facility in the Sutherland Shire. The exhibition runs until 3 July 2011.
Don’t miss out on the weekend workshop, ‘Contemporary Mixed Media Landscape‘ with Pamela Griffith on 12 June. Participants will create landscapes using acrylic ink, charcoal and graphite. Workshop runs from 10am-40pm and costs $90.
