Twelve Gates Arts presents two sets of recent collaborative prints between three Australian artists: Mathew Greentree and Kathy Heyward with Damon Kowarsky. Since 2011, Kowarsky has engaged in collaborative practices, and recently invited both Greentree and Heyward to revisit some of his work from his extensive travels. Both Greentree and Heyward are also experienced in collaborative practice. Kowarsky met both Greentree and Heyward through attendance at Victorian College of Arts.
Unwritten wills -
Nandini Bagla chirimar
Feb 18 - Mar 25, 2017
Twelve Gates Arts will open its new space with a collection of Nandini Chirimar’s most recent set of small drawings, mixed media works on paper, using drawing, etching, watercolor and chine colle, and prints. Unwritten Wills takes as its subject the objects left behind by loved ones, through which discovered meanings connect the living and dead during the grievance process. At least partially motivated by having lost two loved ones in the span of one year, Chirimar seems to have been struck by the strange intimacy of, for example, “napkins folded exactly how she had left them.” In her musings of very thin lines, she has striven to convey the “depth and sometimes overwhelming presence of the human emotions that come with such events.”
