Alex Spremberg, Jurek Wybraniec & Trever Richards Artist talk/Exhibition

Title: WA Focus AS+TR+YW
Venue: Art Gallery of Western Australia
When: on now 12 March – 16 May 2016 weekdays time:now

Art Collective members and pushing boundaries in painting, all the artists discussed their individual artworks and the concepts behind them was very engaging. These Concrete artists have been putting together larger artworks that this exhibition at AGWA is exhibiting part of the full yet to be completed artworks on show.

Jurek Using Acrylic Board to depict a movie through the brush strokes of Anime backgrounds in Cell animation as a means to contrast with the etched paint filled text of the Close Capture text found on an old Australian movie that each of the words comes from.

Alex utilises and interacts with Record(vinyl music records) of the last 50 years to paint directly onto and transform the cultural iconography of the sleeves to that of artworks that complement each other in the larger artwork, many of which Alex has experimented with in photoshop before using traditional painting and figuratively in many to great effect, playful, joyful and bizarre images emerge.

Trevor takes marine plywood, Fluorescent Light Diffuser (covers) to transform through the colour range that many of Trevors previous works have utilised "BYOG" and only adding Greys to this minimal range of palette to explore in patterns and layering to create show the musical flow of his work, and some landscape wonderment.

"All are committed to the idea of the painting as an object rather than an image" Quote from AGWA 2016

Personally i enjoyed the use of material in all three and playful nature of Alex's works, Trevors is more formal in its appeal, geometry is always strong. the strength of colour has the impact that the artists are known for. Overall a worthwhile experience.
