A Work in Progress

Latrobe Regional Gallery 2014

Exhibition 'A Work in Progress' Latrobe Regional Gallery 2014, Kerrie Warren

Approximately two years prior to the exhibition date I was invited by the Latrobe Regional Gallery in Morwell to exhibit in Gallery 5.

The largest painting in the exhibition was The Bonfire 2014, which was installed as it was viewed in progress, on the studio floor.  This provided visitors with the rare opportunity to move, walk around and study the mark making from a close up and downward perspective where they viewed the more delicate visual effects from this perspective and better imagine how it might have been created. 

It was an exciting opportunity to create a very large scale piece being 4 mt x 6 mt (a quadriptych which enabled me to transport the work in sections) and exhibit it to the wider public in one of Victoria’s premier regional galleries.
