𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟭A

New Work

Martin Paull

Discover Martin Paull's "New Work" exhibition, showcasing finalists from the Blake Prize and Mission to Seafarers prize, such as 'Assassination of a Saint' and 'The Drowned and the Saved.'

Paull explores allegorical themes, bushfires, and haunting urban scenes of Canberra at night, inviting contemplation through miniature paintings. The collection captures the essence of these evocative pieces, creating a unique artistic experience.

𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟭B

Absurd Frontier

Nathan Hughes

Absurd Frontier’s figurative mixed media works fuse picaresque metafictions and wry humour to reflect the poignant absurdities of human folly and hydrocarbon hubris. Socio-ecological anxiety, the moral implications of perception, and how we maintain agency and integrity amidst anthropogenic climate collapse, animate a fluid interplay of myth, mind and screen.

𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟮

Mathew Francis

Split into three structured chapters which explore observation, intimacy and expressionism, ‘CAPTCHA’ is a hypnotic audiovisual journey following an expressionless test subject as he seeks purpose in the mysterious facility he inhabits.

‘CAPTCHA’, initially a graduate project at the University of Canberra, has earned praise for Postglacial, the Canberra-based production team. The film was acknowledged at the 39th St Kilda Film Festival, winning Best Sound at the 28th Canberra Short Film Festival, and was a finalist in the 2023 Melbourne Cineverse Film Festival.

𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗿𝘆 𝟯
Cold Collations

Susan Chancellor

In Cold Collations, Susan Chancellor explores how abstract paintings and small ceramic sculptures arranged in playful groupings (collations) can energise a space and tantalize the viewer with contrasting colours, scales, surface textures, positive and negative spaces and gestural marks.

𝗘𝘅𝗵𝗶𝗯𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗿𝘂𝗻 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 THURSDAY 22 FEBRUARY - SUNDAY 17 MARCH 2024

Gallery opening times: Wednesday to Sunday, 12 - 5pm.

M16 Artspace operates on the lands of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people. We honour and pay our respects to their traditional custodians. We acknowledge this land always was and always will be the country of Australia’s First Nations People. Sovereignty was never ceded.
