Propinquity & Distance:
Self-portraiture in Contemporary Painting Practice

Group Exhibition 2004

Curator: Mary Pridmore. Carnegie Gallery, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

 

Seven of the embodied pools and paintings from the exhibition, The Feeling of What Happens, were also exhibited in this exhibition curated by Mary Pridmore. The concept of the exhibition rested in the idea that ‘the very substance of paint becomes a pool of reflection, allowing the painter to drag out submerged issues about themselves and record them within the material’.
