EXHIBTION DATES: 3RD NOVEMBER – 25 NOVEMBER
THE LITTLE GALLERY
DEVONPORT REGIONAL GALLERY
Paul Snell is a Launceston based artist whose distinct images aim to create an immersive visual experience. This new series of works titled Afterimage explores non-representational forms in photography and examines the possibilities of abstraction and minimalism in new media.
Afterimage comprises of two large photographic prints mounted behind acrylic creating a contemplative installation in The Little Gallery. Paul Snell’s art practice examines the transformation of photographic modes of production and the manipulation and exploration of data to invent new visual forms. Snell utilises the basic elements of line, colour, surface and light. The imagery is composed of repetitive colour pairing, overlapping, reversing and sequencing creating a vibrant viewing experience.
The Devonport Regional Gallery has an active education program which invites schools to visit the exhibitions for no charge. Afterimage will give students the opportunity to see the links between these contemporary pieces and some of the work produced in the sixties by modernist painters and printmakers and more contemporary abstract painters and photographers.
The Little Gallery is the Devonport Regional Gallery’s project space, where early to mid career Tasmanian artists have the opportunity to exhibit a small body of work. This program is also designed to assist artists to expand their practice in a non- commercial space.
The Devonport Regional Gallery is currently taking applications for The Little Gallery, applications are due on 19th of November. Go to our website top find out more.
