The Ripple Effect
1 Jul 2020-12 Jul 2020
Wednesday to Friday, 11am – 5pm
Saturday and Sunday, 11am – 4pm
An exhibition of paintings by Geoffrey Adams.
Geoffrey Adams’ mangrove-based landscape paintings use multiple layers of pigment, and often run across the canvas in different directions. He frequently paints while the canvas is flat on the ground, dripping pigments from different heights. The canvas is then lifted and turned as the liquid paint forms random patterns and colour combinations. Birds hide in the leaves and twisted stems of the mangroves, obscured by random dribbles, drips and trickles of pigment. This experimental process can be quite random, but produces unexpected and highly distinctive works that are almost impossible to replicate.
Opening Event: 4 – 6pm, Saturday 4 July
Guest Speaker: Author and sports writer, Greg Growden
