Rob Riley’s got an exhibition on this month at CCAS Manuka. On his blog he has this to say:
Screen Graphics : Common Sites is an exhibition of ten new paintings by Rob Riley, showing in July at the Canberra Contemporary Artspace – Manuka, ACT.
In this exhibition Riley deploys the scopic regime of the digital age, a gridded 2D plane of vertical and horizontal lines such as that used as the geometric framework of websites, to represent the discorporate nature of virtual interaction. Onto this, aleotoric painterly abstract motifs representing corporeality are juxtaposed.
