Ella Whateley

Gallery 2

13 – 30 April 2017

Opening 6pm Thursday 13 April

Exhibition continues until 5pm Sunday 30 April

Breathing Space is a show that seeks to live up to its name. 
Ella Whateley’s painting Breathing Space 1: Into the New Creation hangs in the centre of the exhibition space; the work provides, through its presentation of light and space, and the suspension of gravity, a visual focus for a multi-sensory experience. It is accompanied by a sound piece composed by Benjamin Drury in response to a shared desire to engage the audience in new ways about what it means to be embodied and alive.  Challenging what a painting is and can do, and what music is and can do, Breathing Space offers the visitor an invitation to slow down and contemplate. 

Ella Whateley is a visual artist currently engaged in post-doctoral research in Painting at the School of Art, Australian National University.

Benjamin Drury is a composer and sound artist studying at the ANU School of Music. His practice encompasses experimental, jazz and popular music, with a focus on acoustics, texture and sound-design.

Philip Alldis

Gallery 3

13 April –  30 April 2017

Opening Thursday 6pm 13 April

Exhibition continues until 5pm Sunday 30 April

Alldis uses drawing in charcoal to explore the direct juxtaposition and visual segmentation of imagery within a single picture plane.

Finding interest in images removed from their context, Alldis’ accumulation of image-upon-image creates conceptual associations which emerge by chance and move from the impersonal to the personal.
