The master of titles, painter James Rowell has turned his attentions to science in an exhibition that reveals his colourful impressions in comprehensive detail. “In 1987 James Rowell graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the VCA, but got sick of being told that the piece of paper represented only a bachelor of apathy. He responded by beginning a series of works about science, which have only been brought to completion in the last couple of years.” Noted for his brilliant use of colour James also uses a kind of pointillist technique that he has turned into his own characteristic style. It’s a method he has been developing for years and like a good wine it gets better with age. Titles like Frog being electrocuted in electrical circuit, Beaker, Fiery asteroids in the galaxy and Bauxite and Aluminium serrate mark a move away from the curious focus on philosophy and sexuality of his pervious exhibitions like PSYCHEDELIA&SEXUALITY with Ralph. (Locked and unlocked sexuality in the garden, Milk unlocked from mamary glands and Sexual interpretaions of Numbers 20:8) Sasha Grishin wrote a great review for the Canberra Times which you can read below but make sure you also see Sciency Pictures at CCAS Manuka until Sunday 4 August open Friday – Sunday 11-5 pm 19 Furneaux St, Manuka ACT.
