2 Jun 2022 to 26 Jun 2022 Once Only Event

YAVA presents 13 Yarra Valley Artists working in 2D and 3D explore themes around abstract art with paint, photography, clay, and glass.

Featuring artists: Deanne Eccles, Jenny Davis, Jerry Osadczuk, Jo Carroll, John Christie, Laura Windmill, Lee Hearth, Lynne Mc Dowell, Michelle Payne, Robyn Henchel, Susanne Richards, Tania Chanter, Wilani van Wyk Smit.

Viewers unfamiliar with abstract art can often find it confronting and even jarring. Seeking to make sense or find the meaning in the work can be confusing. However if the viewer interacts with the painting in a different way, allowing the colours and forms to infuse our senses , we can travel through understanding on a different level. As the viewer engages with the colours and forms emotions arise; attraction, repulsion, serenity, anger, joy. How the reaction transpires, informs meaning. Abstract art requires a different way of seeing and indeed feeling and being.
