Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery
Deb Mansfield, Alex Riske, JP Willis Exhibition
In his new series, JP Willis presents idealised images of pastoral beauty and unspoilt landscapes - with an unnerving edge.
From intricate hand-drawn, pre-digital works of the 1990s to early digital manipulations of the 2000s, Alex Riske’s intricate geometries tackle concepts of infinity, fractals and the boundlessness of form.
Deb Mansfield looks to peripheral spaces as a way of investigating the nature of boundaries and borders. In choosing spaces that are neither here nor there, she uses these sites as stop-overs in her navigation across a contemporary cultural landscapes.
The exhibition runs until the 18th of November, and the Gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10am to 4pm.
Entry is free, opening hours 10am-4pm Tuesday to Saturday.
Enjoy light refreshments at the Opening Night of Mansfield, Riske & Willis on Friday, 29 September.
