It was a busy night at A-M Gallery last week for the opening of Kate Sheldon’s exhibition Rewrites. Maybe it’s the start of daylight savings, but there’s a summer buzz in the air that is getting arty folk out and about.
Kate’s minimalist and abstract style is bold and engaging. This body of work explored the notion of rewritten memory based on how things change in our minds over time. Her large mixed media canvases hung beautifully beside the light boxes that sparked much of the physical inspiration for the works. Apparently the process of gazing at the light boxes was how Sheldon tapped into her memory. At least we think that was the gist of it… there was a speech. We’re pretty visual, go too deep into concept and you’ve lost us. Sorry about that. But hey, Sheldon’s works satisfy our visual cravings so whatevs!
The exhibition is open at A-M Gallery until November 3rd. Get along and have a peek!
