Exhibition opening: Line of thought at Gaffa, Sydney

OPENING EVENT: Thursday 20 February 6PM – 8PM

EXHIBITION DATES: 20 February – 2 March

“Line of thought” presents an ongoing body of abstract work engaging with the aesthetic of ‘graphics’; drawing on common underlying qualities found in contemporary visual culture such as diagrams, memes, infographics, text, and interfaces.

Contrary to the highly communicative function of graphics, these works are devoid of specific content, and instead playfully stage relationships between the basic formal elements of line, shape, and colour.

The mostly linear compositions are built from an evolving syntax of arcs, ellipses, and intervals; a growing system of rules dictating the position of each line, informing the composition as a whole.
