Artist Statement

Exhibition CHANGE OF DATE Private View, 2.30 pm Sunday 30 June 2024 at Opus 30, 30 Elizabeth St. Castlemaine Victoria 3450

Floortalk 2.30 pm Saturday 6th July with light refreshments.

Bill’s work once teased with what he termed ‘easy beauty’ – large brightly-coloured works made without concern for any of the historic tenets of painting. For example “Rococozenism” exhibition 2009 and “Chance Upon Nothing” exhibition 2013, MARS Gallery, Melbourne.

Here, the immediately gratifying elements have been stripped away. Stripped back to the line. The line here as the mediative present, the process, and the metaphor – combined with an entirely new element, poetic lines.

This exhibition represents a radical shift in process, and the ever-present elements of Zen/Buddhist philosophies are left raw

Exhibition continues to Saturday 28th July.
