Hilarie Mais Exhibition Tour with Co-Curator Blair French
Join us for a tour of the Hilarie Mais exhibition with co-curator Blair French. The exhibition brings together a range of key works by Hilarie Mais made over the last decade.
Mais is best known for her constructions and paintings that merge the formal structure of the grid with an interest in organic forms found in nature. These patterns and sequences are often drawn from the growth of biological forms. Beginning with a geometric pattern the work then develops organically and instinctually, with Mais incorporating a highly personalised application of paint. Resulting works appear to shimmer optically, drawing the viewer’s eyes back and forth through their cycles of line and colour.
Blair French is the Director, Curatorial & Digital at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
Free with entry to the exhibition.
