Convergence – A painting and installation exhibition by Perrin Millard. Webb Gallery, QCA Griffith University, South Brisbane. Opening night 6:00–8:00 pm, Thursday, December 12. Exhibition dates December 10–21, Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Artist talk Saturday December 14 at 2:00 pm.
This exhibition re-frames the way we view the changing face of nature, a multi-modal exploration of elemental phenomena – evoking memory, emotion, and physical responses through the familiarity we have with our natural world. Over centuries of change, elements like the sky remain inherently unchanged by the passage of time, evolving yet ever present.
Utilising the freedom of expanded painting across digital and traditional media, Perrin Millard interrogates this shifting acquaintance by connecting contemporary painting practices with classical and art historical methodologies, opening up a personal dialogue with nature as a means of addressing atemporality, spatiality, natural forces, and our place in the world.
