‘FALLING BLUE (AFTER A. MARTIN) BY CEARA METLIKOVEC
THURSDAY 5th OF NOVEMBER – SUNDAY 15th NOVEMBER
OPENING NIGHT 6 – 8pm THURSDAY 5th NOVEMBER
Small Spaces would like to invite you to ‘Falling Blue (After A. Martin)’, an exhibition by Sydney based artist Ceara Metlikovec.
A graduate of the National Art School, Sydney, and the College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Ceara uses line on paper as a form of abstract expression through which to channel her emotion. Ceara says:
‘After reading the book Agnes Martin. Paintings, Writings, Remembrances by Arne Glimcher, I became intrigued by the way Agnes Martin used line to convey emotion.
” The art work becomes a chart that allows the viewer… to share the artist’s response to interior states.” ‘
We are thrilled to share with you a new body of work by Ceara that explores her direct emotional response to music. Ceara explains:
‘I began work by listening to music on a loop – not trusting myself to access my emotional memory on my own. By the time I began the fourth blue piece, I was no longer conscious of the music playing. I was now an instrument that could “chart” my “interior states”, like a seismograph records rumbles from deep in the earth.’
We hope you can join us for this exciting exhibition.
