Past Exhibition

Vibrant Matter

Drawing predominantly from the TWMA collection with selected loans, Vibrant Matter features Australian abstract paintings and sculptures from the past six decades which resonate with a vital materiality. The exhibition will feature work by a broad range of artists for whom both the materiality and the ‘facture’ of the work – including its line, composition, tone, colour and texture – rather than the use of narrative and figuration, is the primary means by which they express their insights, emotions and ideas.

The selected works incorporate formal invention, experiments in process and use of new materials, highlighting the myriad ways in which abstraction can powerfully convey complex ideas and feelings including: spiritual and metaphysical concepts and experiences; hidden correspondences and rhythms lying beneath outward appearances; elemental structures and forms; numinous experiences; and psychological transformation.
