BRIAN BLANCHFLOWER THE SUBSTANCE OF COLOUR

This event has passed!

BRIAN BLANCHFLOWER
THE SUBSTANCE OF COLOUR

6PM FRIDAY 7 JUNE 2019
TO BE OPENED BY CHRIS MALCOLM, DIRECTOR, JOHN CURTIN GALLERY

EXHIBITION CONTINUES TO 6 JULY

BRIAN BLANCHFLOWER IN CONVERSATION WITH CHRIS MALCOLM
3PM SATURDAY 15 JUNE
Turner Galleries are extremely pleased to present a major exhibition by Brian Blanchflower throughout their gallery spaces.

Blanchflower is one of Australia’s most important living artists. In The Substance of Colour he presents several groups of works completed since 2005, most of which have not been exhibited before; some not exhibited in Perth before; and some which have only appeared in survey shows here.

The artworks reveal an ongoing interest in the octagon form as a vehicle for colour, the condensing of paint/matter into horizontal blocks of colour, and the concentrated focal points of colour as a means of activating monochrome surfaces. Blanchflower stated:

Colour is a unique language. It is an extraordinarily subtle one.
In painting it can give rise to feelings which are somehow inexpressible yet nevertheless real.
As the British artist Bob Brighton (1936-2017) who devoted his life's work to colour said:
“There is no other language quite so eloquent”
(May 2019)

It has been nearly a decade since Blanchflower’s last major showing of work in Perth (a survey exhibition at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery 2010), and 16 years since his last commercial gallery solo show in Perth (Goddard de Fiddes 2003). More recent exhibitions include a survey exhibition at the Drill Hall Gallery, Australian National University, Canberra in 2016, and solo exhibitions at Liverpool Street Gallery (Sydney 2012) and Charles Nodrum Gallery (Melbourne 2017).

His artworks can be found in numerous important public, private and corporate collections across Australia, including all the state art collections.
