Greyscale is an exhibition by five Australian artists - Peter Burgess, Julia Davis, Adrian Gebers, Pollyxenia Joannou and Lisa Jones - and includes drawings, digital media, photographs and mixed media works.
The exhibition explores the role of grey and grey-ness, as a theme and the relation of grey to significant cultural and scientific properties and to colour theory. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue with a text written by Dr Donna Brett of Sydney University, who states, "For the artists in Greyscale, this sense of in-between-ness and anticipation assuages a logical space for investigation of both the colour grey and its place in the cultural imaginary. Grey is used here to rework how we perceive matter, how we embody place, the ways in which we encounter, remember or retrace time and remnants of existence. It is also fundamental for the possibilities of recording the world through the intricate materialities of graphite, felt, paint and photography or lava and ash."
Working towards a South West where talented artists thrive, and a resilient and connected visual arts ecology that inspires more engaged and diverse audiences to value and advocate for its work.
