Evening spread against my eyes

Thursday 04 April 2019 - Sunday 21 April 2019

Sarah Summers, 'Bower', 2019, oil on canvas, 91.5 x 122cm

Sarah Summers presents ‘Evening spread against my eyes’, a series of paintings and drawings about the experience of darkness while walking home at night, on at the Yarra Sculpture Gallery in Abbotsford.

Using layers of tone, abstraction of forms, and slippery points of light and colour, the works describe the strange and surprising space of an evening suburb.  Nightfall creates new shapes and colours, and shadows become portals, rich with possibility.  The darkness is a lens, disrupting the stable and expected, inviting the viewer into an intangible encounter with light. 

The exhibition runs from April 4-21, and all are invited to the opening celebration on April 6, 2–4pm, at Yarra Sculpture Gallery, Abbotsford.
