Artist Belinda Fox, Author of Back to the Start

Arthouse Gallery is delighted to invite you to 'On Paper', a dynamic group exhibition of new works on paper, opening next Wednesday 12 April, 6–8pm.

 

‘On Paper’ brings together new works by twenty-one Arthouse Gallery artists interpreting and experimenting with the paper form. Created specifically for the show, the works consider the aesthetic valency of this often undervalued medium. Historically, paper is rooted in utilitarianism, used to disseminate and record information or as a planning tool for other artworks. The pieces in ‘On Paper’ subvert this outmoded perception, positing paper as a fertile contemporary medium. In this way, paper vacillates between form and function, practicality and aestheticism, art and everyday – a unique modality that differentiates it from other art-specific mediums. The show celebrates this liminality by revealing paper’s vast potential; from the intricate, stained surfaces of Belinda Fox to Joshua Yeldham’s hand-carved prints, the experimental paper assemblages of Emma Walker, Katherine Hattam’s characteristic book-page collages, the bold ink landscapes of Ian Greig, Aaron Kinnane’s debut abstracts on paper and much more.
