Judith Duquemin has returned to the Bundaberg Region to present her latest exhibition Geometry and Place which includes influences from local landscapes.
The exhibition, which is a wide-ranging survey of non-representational, reductive geometric paintings, opens at the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery on March 27.
Judith said the works were an intellectual tool created from code.
“All of the works in this exhibition are from my early work with simple systems or schema,” Judith said.
“The code creates a geo-tessellated, multi-dimensional composition to which I apply a minimum palette of four to six colours to bring out the form.
“For me it articulates memory, it is a research tool, it is a way to construct form and a way to stage interaction of colour and light.”
The code that she formulates dictates where on the canvas a line should be drawn, which brings out the shape and composition.
“These are really daring.”
The former Kepnock State High School student said her hometown had influenced her artistic work to a degree.
“Every time I came back I was watching the city grow – it’s a very geometric city.
“I’ve always believed there are subtle connections to this city. The geometry of farming, the flatness of the terrain.”
The exhibition will be on show at the gallery from 13 March to 28 April.
The opening will be held in conjunction with Bundaberg Regional Art Galleries’ free Wednesday Art Walk from 10am on March 27.
