Rhythm, pace, patterns. Cadence surrounds us and this exhibition is inspired by it.
We look to repetitive patterns found in fauna and flora together with subtle textures of grain and feathers. We find inspiration in the rhythmic call of tree frogs after an evening of summer rain or in the annual migration of a Bogong moth. We witness the result of unrelenting cadence upon geological formations, where tidal waves etch tessellated sandstone tiles or simply the cadence within the routine rhythm of a human life.
The curator has selected artists for their innovative use of traditional mediums, crafting work that is fresh and original. These are artists working to their own tempo, confident in their individual cadence – singing their own song to their own rhythm.
