Julian Dashper, John Nixon, and Jan van der Ploeg in The Smoothing of Things, Two Rooms, Auckland, New Zealand

Among these eleven artists a ‘smoothing’ operates. It operates differently whether thick and buttery or applied in slickly layered glazes. The painter’s attentiveness, whether pressing, rubbing or sealing over warp and weft or board, creates an intimate relation between their touch and our being touched.

ENP2 Monochrome Paintings, Everything Nothing Projects, Canberra, Australia

everything nothing projects

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.’
