The Attraction of Opposites

12 May 2007
John McDonald

NOTHING MIGHT SEEM easier than for an artist to paint every picture in black on a stark white canvas. For British painter John Virtue (b. 1947), this has been his method for some 20 years. It has also been the method of many generations of Zen brush and ink painters and of abstract expressionists such as Franz Kline and Pierre Soulages. But Virtue, despite the abstract dimension in his work, remains a landscape painter. ... read more

Roger Ackling [2006]

12 September 2006
Annandale Galleries

When one first encounters the work of ROGER ACKLING the response is inevitably puzzling. Bits of wood with burned images on white walls. The label lists "sunlight on wood" as the medium. Sunlight on wood? Now the curiosity is aroused. The geometric burn marks are actually thousands of individual burn marks made by directing the suns rays through a magnifying glass. Ackling's relationship with the open air begins with finding his driftwood supports on long walks usually by the sea near his home in Norfolk. ... read more
