Francesca Mataraga, Abstrakt Painting, 2009
November 18-28, 2009
Francesca Mataraga presents her new work Abstrakt Painting at Factory 49. Abstrakt Painting consumes the gallery space with colour, combining canvases with objects, fluorescent lights, painted walls and mirror, unifying the space through the use of objects as abstract forms. In this expansive new work Mataraga explores the possibilities of three-dimensional painting in contemporary practice.
A Sydney based artist, Mataraga has exhibited work in the Tim Olsen Drawing Prize at COFA, Photospace at the Australian National University, Sydney Non Objective, the Blake Prize, the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize, Ivan Dougherty Gallery at COFA, the Tin Sheds Gallery at the University of Sydney, the George Paton Gallery at the University of Melbourne, the Year in Art at the S.H. Ervin Gallery, the Cross Art Projects and various regional galleries, national prizes and conferences.
