Thought Patterns: Selected Works from the Collection

23 Mar 2019 - 19 May 2019

To accompany the exhibition Tracey Moffatt: Body Remembers, a selection of works from the collection of TarraWarra Museum of Art will be presented in a display titled Thought Patterns: Selected Works from the Collection.

Thought Patterns takes its cue from a chart featured in the publication for Moffatt’s widely-acclaimed 57th Venice Biennale exhibition that outlines the intriguing constellation of influences, ideas, memories and phenomena that informed the development of her photographic series Body Remembers.

Drawing on the Museum’s significant holdings of Australian art, Thought Patterns includes works by Russell Drysdale, Rosalie Gascoigne, Aida Tomescu, William Delafield Cook, Louise Hearman, Charles Blackman and others.

The works set the scene for encountering Body Remembers by evoking and alluding to some of the concerns, moods, textures, light and shade, and compositional elements present in the series, which depicts a 1950s maid, stranded on an isolated colonial property within a deserted, dreamlike landscape.
