Glacier is an exhibition that presents a range imaginative ways contemporary artists are exploring new possibilities for painting such as using technology to explode traditional boundaries. The artist’s apply variable tools, including digital technology, photography and light to the traditional craft of painting.
Carmen Soraya creates a computer generated colour room and Kieran Kinney an extravagant photorealist five metre panoramic painting of a make-believe Gold Coast. Glacier artists celebrate the experiences of their lives in terms of the places they occupy and the ideas and issues they believe in.
Glacier presents the work of seventeen artists from around Australia: Chris Bond, Judith Duquemin, Craig Easton, Claire Firth – Smith, Juan Ford, Mark Galea, Helga Groves, Stephen Haley, David Harley, Kieran Kinney, Amanda Marburg, Mark Misic, Nuha Saad, Carmen Soraya, Darren Wardle, Irene Wellm and Wang Zhiyuan.
