Brett McMahon – Forest

Opening Night – Friday 9th September 6pm

Exhibition – September 10th – October 8th

Forest

Space compression

Overabundance of growth and decay…visual and fragrant

Ancient incarnations now evident as black layers of coal and fossil

New growth searching and reaching

Sounds pulsing beating scratching and washing through the canopy

Old recurring rhythms

After his much praised major survey exhibition at the Newcastle Art Gallery in 2015, Brett McMahon’s first series of new work, FOREST, opens at Curve Gallery on Friday 9th September.  FOREST is an exploration of natural forms and structures recorded during walks along Newcastle’s coastline. This source material manifests into large scale paper works, sculptural installations, sound and video pieces.

Based in Newcastle, Brett McMahon has exhibited regularly over the past 20 years and has work in public, private and corporate collections in Australia, Europe and the US. Boston Globe critic Sebastian Smee has described McMahon’s work as “One of the most interesting artists working today”.
