‘Rest Here’ features “curiously compelling” works by Christopher Dewar, which have been created in the artist’s studio in the Hunter Valley.
His works are studied interplays of colour and shape, which express liminality through abstraction.
Dewar’s engagement with transitions and boundaries began in an effort to materially manifest the process of leaving. These works exist in a place of intentional disorder, where the journey and destination are not consciously pre-determined, allowing the artist to ritualise and embody moments of personal change, with all their inherent confusion, discomfort and risk.
Rest Here is on exhibition at Singleton Arts + Cultural Centre until 15 January 2022.
The Centre is open from Tuesday-Sunday from 9.30am to 4.30pm and entry is free.
Singleton Arts + Cultural Centre, 23 Maitland Rd, Singleton.
