In the main gallery space, Newcontemporaries presents Approaches to Making, an exhibition of recent graduates, from the School of Art, Australian National University, Canberra. The artists have taken various approaches in exploring the relationships between their personal concepts and diverse materials. We are proud to introduce to Sydney this fresh new group of emerging artists from Canberra and their inspiring achievements.
[The exhibition demonstrates a confidence in
the making process and a sophisticated attention to the
traditions of their materials. The students are excellent problem solvers
able to synthesize ideas, work with traditional and new materials and techniques; creating work that is refreshing, vital and insightful. The ANU School of Art is proud of the achievements of its students and graduates led by inspirational talented staff, themselves practicing artists at the forefront of activity in their field.
We salute them, their work and their achievements.]
