Current Exhibitions

The Trouble with Michelangelo

CARTER presents is pleased to announce The Trouble with Michelangelo, an exhibition of paintings by Kirsten Glass and Patricia Ellis.

The Trouble with Michelangelo evolves from Glass and Ellis' shared interest cultural decadence and its transformative styling. Glass and Ellis consider paintings as fictive fields: their canvases are terrains for narrative embellishment, locations for invented desire and flight of fancy, mapped out and made tangible through the liquid physicality of paint. Though their approaches are radically different – Glass' monumental sized canvases and salacious brushwork versus Ellis' tiny coarsely rendered panel paintings – the unlikely coupling of these artists creates a complimentary paradox, setting a stage where oscillating scale and heavily textured surfaces create a tension of surreality, distortion, and displacement.

Influenced by the Group of Seven's modernity-meets-new-world-frontier aesthetic, Ellis' humorous folk-baroque style paintings function as visual sketches for an unwritten novel set in historical Venice: a cosmopolitan, globalistic centre of a prein... [ Read all ]

Have we all forgotten our past (and are repeating it)? Or are we merely remembering what we have done? THEN I REMEMBERED expresses a satirical critique of the past, relived or re-evaluated expressing insecurities and obscurity. The present is represented by the mundane; domestic items dressed up to look idealised and a future that is a mere reflection of the past, a computer generated passage of pre-programmed, pre-fabricated fate. The exhibition is narrated by the vicious cycles we tend to become stuck in and sidelined by nonsensical slogans distracting us from what is constantly spiraling down the drain.

George Santayana said Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it ; when remembering the human brain often confuses reality with dreams; so is all that is ever expressed a vague ambiguity of what we are really only trying to remember? We are in a con... [ Read all ]
