Exhibition Friday 2 June – Saturday 1 July  2017

Perceptual abstraction was traditionally devoid of narrative, instead placing an emphasis on the clarity and precision of objective sensory perception. The broad range of approaches to art making within this definition include hard-edge geometry, spatial illusion and perceptual ambiguity. These approaches impart value to the psychological and physiological responses of the art viewer.

This exhibition includes a selection of contemporary Australian artists that experiment with the abstracted form in a variety of ways. The works nod to the lineages of a broad range of movements associated with 1950 and 60s perceptual abstraction, including Hard-Edge Painting, Minimalism, and Op Art. They expand upon these movements by harnessing new forms and approaches to abstraction.
