A LOOSE SIEVE
Maintaining the very high standard of exhibitions at CCAS City Lars Wetselaar opened last night with a spectacular series that responds to two trips through an around Australia. These incredibly skilful works use second hand lead on geometric backings. Says Lars, “To define or recreate what I saw is unnecessary, it’s the sensibility of that experience that remains. Thus, these interpretations attempt to convey the aspiration of the allusion of the harsh beauty that I encountered and I hope to again.” Looking at these works one cannot help but be impressed by Lars’ technique of layering found materials that are ultimately constructed in ways that reflect a great painting. This is work that requires very close inspection on so many levels! At CCAS City until December 10.
