ABANDONED WORKS 1970-2008 - BRENT WONG
5 October - 11 November, 10am - 4pm. Opening: Thursday 4 October
This exhibition serves as a survey of Brent Wong’s prolific and prodigious artistic career from the early 1970s into the new millennium in the form of abandoned and incomplete works. These paintings capture the artistic process and reveal the constant editing and exploration exercised by a prominent visual artist. None of the works on display will have been on view to the public before, but will feature several familiar compositions, including the surreal landscapes invaded by floating architectural forms and his cloudscapes. 'Abandoned Works 1970-2008' encapsulates the artist’s exploration of ideas through paint and will uncover the change and evolution Wong experienced throughout his artistic career.
