Brian Hartigan Circle in the Round exhibition invitation.pdf
As with jazz, improvisation is at the heart of the work
of Illawarra painter Brian Hartigan. It embraces all the
risk and surprise that painting in that way entails.
This survey takes its title from one of his favourite
Miles Davis albums. The term ‘in the round’ - normally
applied to three-dimensional sculpture - has particular
relevance to his work, which is concerned with the
three-dimensional illusion in painting.
Wednesday 5 July, 1 - 2pm
Brian Hartigan will discuss the origins of abstraction,
as well as providing insights into his own practice and
the work of other abstractionists.
Free, all welcome.
