The artworks in this exhibition use shapes in a bold and defining way. Artists like Robert Jacks, John Coburn and Richard Watkins use a combination of geometric and natural shapes in their paintings. Rosalie Gascoigne (pictured) draws creative inspiration from the discarded to evocatively convey the essence of nature and the transitory and captivating effects of light, air and space. All of the artists in this exhibition explore the possibilities of mixing geometric and natural shapes to create artworks that convey space, depth, mood and feeling.
All artworks on display are from the Benalla Art Gallery permanent collection.
