Colour + Form + Function - Approaches to Abstraction
17 Jan 2013 - 28 Feb 2013

Exploring the function of colour and form in artworks that enact a unique approach to abstraction, Colour + Form + Function brings together works by new contemporaries and world-renowned international artists including, Charles Arnoldi, Paul Jenkins, Anish Kapoor, Sarah Morris, Richard Serra, Pard Morrison, James Nares, Wonkun Jun, Jeff Kellar and Norman Mooney.

The exhibition explores the potential of colour, the significance of physical process, the materiality of paint and the primacy of form. Colour + Form + Function is a timely and dynamic exploration of the relevance of abstraction in modern and contemporary art now.

The Image Is One Thing
29 Nov 2012 - 29 Dec 2012

The title of the exhibition is taken from a quote by Elvis Presley: "The image is one thing and the human being is another. It's very hard to live up to an image, put it that way."

Presenting artworks that explore the power of portraiture to suggest or elude narrative; to idolize and interrogate celebrity.

This exhibition involves three individually curated spaces. The first space presents work by Gottfried Helnwein and Russell Young. Helnwein's portraits of writers, poets and painters are imbued with a sense of mystery and myth. While famous for their cultural significance, Helnwein's figures are rendered ultimately unknowable; they are veiled, shadowy and enigmatic. Young's portraits on the other hand, pivot on celebrity. His subjects are at once famous and infamous. In his 'Pig Portraits' the artist takes police mugshots of film stars, musicians and politicians as his source material; creating large-scale screen prints on canvas rendered in vivid hues. Young's subjects are enticing images of glamour, fame, notoriety and scandal.

The second space presents an unparalleled opportunity to explore Andy Warhol's approach to portraiture. Warhol created a pantheon of different images to reflect the 'idols' of contemporary culture. His works were revolutionary for the way in which they confounded any distinction between 'high art' and popular imagery. The majority of his subjects were taken from mass media news imagery, publicity photographs, commercial advertising, Hollywood cinema and popular television programmes. Warhol captured and interrogated America's fascination with fame and celebrity. As a pioneer of Pop Art, Warhol's works function as artefacts of an era, documenting the icons of American history and popular culture.

A separate annex showcases artwork portraying Queen Elizabeth II, in the year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the recent royal visit to Singapore. This collection further explores the way in which artists approach the notion of the subject as icon. Exploring multidisciplinary approaches to image making, this third exhibition space includes three-dimensional lenticular light boxes by Chris Levine, a postcard collage by David Mach and rare unique works from Warhol's 'Reigning Queens' series.
