Chris Burton | Pencil On
March 4 – March 22
Pencil On is a solo exhibition by Canberra-based artist Chris Burton that investigates methods of translating urban spaces into abstract compositions, expressing depth and noise within constructed landscapes. Informed by interactions with both familiar and foreign spaces, the drawings react to environments that feature density, movement and repetitive architectural patterns. These are translated through the use of abstract tonal transitions, visual mapping and repetition of linear mark making. By using similar mark making on varied surfaces – paper and board – the body of work suggests a conversation about surface and its implications for tonality and space.
Marilou Chagnaud, Lucia Dohrmann and Kate Little | Common Threads
April 1 – April 19
Common Threads is a group exhibition curated by Saskia Scott that brings together new bodies of work by Marilou Chagnaud, Lucia Dohrmann and Kate Little. The three artists share a deep concern for the construction of meaning through the material processes of their work, as well as an interest in repetition, pattern, and geometric abstraction.

YAYOI KUSAMA: THE SPIRITS OF THE PUMPKINS DESCENDED INTO THE HEAVENS
This installation by Yayoi Kusama comprises a vibrant yellow room overrun with black polka dots of various sizes. A mirrored box at its centre houses several dozen illuminated pumpkin sculptures, which are endlessly reflected in the room’s internal mirrors. The combination of dots, pumpkins and mirrors creates an optical illusion of infinite space and colour.
