CALLING CONTROL FREAKS !

Well Nat’s been hard at it in Tassie  while we have been a little slow to start in Canberra. But the big slow is over; the ACT social pages have finally kicked off in earnest style with a very special exhibition curated by Isabelle Morgan (Belle), our 2012 intern form Art History, ANU. At the end of the internship Isabelle gets to select an emerging artist (or artists) for a show and she decided to work with two fabulous new artists, Alex Lewis (Canberra) and Lucy  Boyle (Sydney). Control and Contain is the title because Alex and Lucy both challenge the confines of their respective media – one senses, however, that there is no controlling these two who will have total control over what ever they produce. Don’t you worry about that …. This is a show that could be seen as having a hint of the ‘sweet and sour metaphor’. Its like opposite work and yet it it just goes together in a beautiful appropriate blend of monochrome and colour, hard edge and soft,  for example. And until we can come up with something better than that – better just head on down to the Manuka Gallery.  CCAS Manuka Thursday 31 January – Sunday 10.
