A solo exhibition by New York-based painter Winston Roeth.
In this solo exhibition for MOP, Kyle Jenkins has created a new body of work that involves the deconstruction and reconstruction of various relationships between conceptualised and physical interpretations of space. The conceptual foundation for the work is the Rolling Stones concert at Altamont Speedway on Saturday, December 6, 1969, where various interpretations of space collapsed into chaotic and evolving forms of activity.
In this exhibition, Andrews will present a site-specific arrangement of works made between 1998-2012, collectively pointing towards his ongoing interest in the (seemingly distant yet re-occurring) forms of Non-Objectivity and Constructivism.
Gallery 9 is proud to present the first in a series of exhibitions presenting some of the most exciting practitioners in the broad yet lesser-known field of contemporary non-objective art.
The documentation of Kasimir Malevich’s solo exhibition 0:10, The Last Futurist Exhibition of Pictures in Petrograd, 1915, yielded one of Modernisms iconic images. The black and white photograph shows twenty-one square and rectangular paintings of varying size, hanging on adjacent walls. A chair sits at the base of the right-hand wall, giving an indication of scale. At the top corner of the room, hung so as to form a triangle against the room’s top corner, is Malevich’s Black Square (1915).
A solo exhibition by MINUS SPACE artist Gilbert Hsiao.
David Thomas’ paintings, photopaintings and painting/installations address issues of complexity, perception, being amid time and space through the use of duration and a composite formal language that employ monochromes and painted reflective surfaces.
The continuing tradition of monochrome (one colour) painting in western art began in the early 20th century. American curator, critic and writer Barbara Rose describes monochrome painting as: ‘simultaneously fullness and void, a moment of silence in a world of noise. It goes nowhere and everywhere, it is specific and universal, tangible and immaterial. It is the ultimate paradox.’

To use abstraction as an agent form is a system. To use abstraction to present a position is a system. To use abstraction to reference a context is a system.
Beth Kirkland from Albany WA and Melanie E. Khava from Sydney are presenting individual series of paintings for a collaborative exhibition that addresses distance as the key issue. Real physical distance separates the artists, therefore dialogue was held via email over a six month period.
Installation view. In this work Halnan is revisiting concepts and materials she was exploring in the making of quite large scale ephemeral works in the years 1995 – 2001. She defined these works (Books I – III, Dumbbell, Wavelength etc.) as “installed constructions” as they were fabricated within the constraints of certain particular spaces or environments, and relied to a large extent on these environments for their form. To this extent they were site specific [...]

Installation view. April 16 – May 14, 2011 Tomislav Nikolic’s paintings have always presented centralized fields of colour. In this current series of twelve works the centre is built up by several layers of transparent washes of marble dust and pigment that coalesce into a deep yet luminous colour-field. At the edges of these washes, the colours separate into fine lines, dribbles, strokes, and zips of colour that subtly reveal the underside of the surface [...]

Installation view. February 3-26,2011 The artworks in COLOUR light TIME celebrate complexity, transience, and the contingent nature of being. They off er us a range of approaches whilst engaging us with our own experiencing, perceiving, understanding, and feeling, and ask us to consider how these processes unfold and develop over time. Through the use of colour and light in time and space, the artworks generate complex responses via physical phenomena (sensation) and symbolic codes (knowledge). [...]

The striated space becomes new territory, emerging and, developing a dialogue with the smooth. The smooth [...]
