Invisible Structures, Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf, 2023

26 July – 20 August 2023

Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf, 548 New South Head Road, Double Bay NSW 2028


The exhibition Invisible Structures will be showing at Woollahra Gallery at Redleaf from 26 July until 20 August. Woollahra Gallery is a beautifully restored and relatively new space, dedicated to visual arts and culture. This exhibition touches on themes of identity, human relationships, time, existence, and ideas of beauty.

The works in this exhibition stem from the fleeting character of the photographic image, blending imprecise recollection with perceived truths. Our response to experiences and stories, and how we recall them, become the structure we build our lives around. The title Invisible Structures refers to these foundational beliefs; the works themselves: the subjective nature of memory.

The works on show blend the inherent associations of textiles with the intimacy of the body, the ostensible objectivity of the photographic image, found materials, and the expressive gestures of paint, and allude to the reality of human coping mechanisms – what we choose to believe and the inaccuracies we live with. While my particular focus is toward the female lineage within my own family, the exhibition contemplates interpretations of the past, while encouraging viewers to consider their own personal histories, how we establish truth and create meaning, and how these (mis)interpretations might inform our perceptions of, and in, the future.
