Iain Turner talks about his exhibition REVEALING SPIRITS

"Revealing Spirits" is a personal awakening, a spirited inner revival to paint the abstract daydream, a silent poem.

Dreamland #2
Everything comes to play here: revisiting past works, recollections, observations and memories. "The work develops in the doing" That was Paterson Ewen's favorite line to me and that voice has always played in my head. Thanks to Pat I got hooked on working on plywood using routers and grinders as well as chain saws "the whole deal" and the freedom to use it all in making and exploring new painting forms. The rhythmic expressiveness, left to chance, is like the "Automatistes".

Dreams and Wishes
"Art Making" is a self-imposed journey and if you are lucky a body of work emerges.

The picture changes when you need to deliver the goods. The "Art Scene" posturing is a necessary reference point. It's a significant moment to interact. Good or bad, it is the art biz, never easy. As an artist you go through the motions of communication revealing your cryptic language which has a spirit of it's own.

About the Show

My Tribe: New Works by Vicki Easton McClung features mixed media works informed by the artist’s interest in narrative forms. To produce these works, Easton McClung sifted through Eaton’s catalogue images from the fifties, her late mother-in-law’s antique dolls, and a collection of found objects.

With a sense of familiarity and intimacy, with themes that are persistently just out of reach, Vicki Easton McClung presents personal ideas and experiences that enlighten her work and unique sense of identity.
