Exhibition details

Abstracting the Collection explores a variety of approaches to abstraction in contemporary painting, from the optical to the conceptual. Linked by an emphasis on the grid or repeated pattern and a lyrical, textural approach to colour and form, works take inspiration from a variety of sources including nature, textile design and from data collected from books and texts.

Featuring works from the Cruthers Collection of Women's Art - including artists Cathy Blanchflower, Elizabeth Coats, Debra Dawes, Eveline Kotai and Lisa Wolfgramm; new work from artist Siné MacPherson and key paintings by renowned Western Australian artists Michele Theunissen and Helen Smith.
