Wed 3 Sep - Fri 19 Sep 2014

Sanne Mestrom's Black Paintings (paradoxically made from steel and wool) are commentaries on the broad nature of current painting and reference Frank Stella's iconic 1960s Black Paintings, which made important breakthroughs in the way painters thought about surface and the 'object quality' in their work.

Fresh from a critically acclaimed exhibition at Utopian Slumps, Melbourne, these works combine complex conceptual gambits with a gutsy materiality.
