sorry I was/am too much pairs works by Western Australian contemporary artist Carla Adams and one of Australia’s foremost modernist artists, Albert Tucker.
The show includes Adams’ paintings, textiles, ceramics and mixed-media objects, drawings and visual diaries that emerge from her experiences in the contemporary dating world. This is juxtaposed against a selection of Tucker’s drawings and paintings from the Gallery’s Collection produced between 1943 and 1989.
A surprising pairing at first glance, both artists are intimately connected in their use of highly-personalised and charged versions of expressionism as the vehicle for their struggle with feeling connections and misconnections between people, the blurring of the private and public self, carnal and romantic desires and their constant frustration and gender roles.
