The collision of art and technology has empowered artists and viewers alike. Yet with every technical breakthrough, we become further removed from the material process of creating. Join us at Gillman Barracks where we have select work by acclaimed process-driven painters, installation artists and photographers on view.
Each of the artists in this international exhibition works in a deliberative, laborious and highly skilled manner, producing work that is rich with meaning, materiality and sensuous, aesthetic power. It’s work that makes you want to look and linger.
The show includes tactile mulberry paper assemblages by Chun Kwang Young who painstakingly wraps thousands of foam forms in hand-tinted antique mulberry paper; vivid abstract canvases by Ricardo Mazal inspired by photographs the artist takes over months or even years; atmospheric paintings on metal by Miya Ando who creates as part of a meditative, spiritual process; and powerful waterfalls from Hiroshi Senju who mixes his pigments from ground stones and coral using a thousand-year old technique.
