Exhibition official opening Friday 2 February 6 pm. Showing until Thursday 28 March, 2024
In this series of recent paintings and monoprints, Jeremy Barrett continues a lifelong exploration abstraction. The works are exploratory and improvisatory, enabling the artist to arrive at a convincing resolution of formal elements. Barret’s final works are independent of, not reliant on, verbal explanation, with references to socio-economic issues and other obvious visual associations, existing as autonomous statements in visual language, that invite the viewer to make their own interpretations.
