Gippsland Art Gallery

Exhibition: Recent Acquisitions: Gippsland Art Gallery Collection - View online

In 2019 the Gippsland Art Gallery acquired 217 new artworks for its permanent collection―the majority as donations. This small selection of artworks explores ‘strange presences’ in the landscape, and serve to question (and sometimes undermine) our traditional understanding of the way land is used, owned, and depicted.

These artworks range from paintings, prints and sculpture, to ceramic, metalwork, woodwork and mixed media. Collectively they contribute to a greater appreciation and understanding of the collection’s overarching theme: the natural environment.

Pattern Play app - available to download on the app store here

Inspired by contemporary artist Elizabeth Gower, Pattern Play explored geometry to create striking optical patterns with colour, texture and photographs. 

Gower is one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary artists with a career spanning forty years. Using hand-cut remnants from advertising materials and everyday products adhered to drafting film, canvas, boards and walls, the artist creates a multitude of designs that reference patterns from the natural world and the built environment.  

Inspired by this process, the Pattern Play application simulates the artist’s labour-intensive processes to create unique digital patterns which were incorporated into a collaborative artwork, on display in the Gallery for the duration of the exhibition.
