‘Impermanences (Distant Conversations)’ explores the function of painting in the contemporary world, and in particular how it can affect our perception of time, knowing and feeling. This exhibition uses duration, colour and space to enable issues of perception, generate emotional responses from the viewer and encourage deep contemplations of the universal.
David Thomas lives and works in Melbourne, Australia. His work explores the contemplative nature of painting, photopainting and in installation, in particular how new iterations of the monochrome tradition can explore the perception of time and space complexity and impermanence. Within this exhibition, Thomas extends his site-specific approach to installation attuning numerous components to the gallery’s architecture to evoke notions of time and memory.
