Assemblages, 1989 

Reconnaissance Gallery, Melbourne, Australia 


Assemblage plays dual roles of providing both interference and actualisation in a painting. It poses alternatives to the idea of a painting performing only as an image by transmitting multiple and incongruent meanings through disorder.

Each of these works reflect the reifying of differing agencies, imagery and material form.

What happens when the composition or character of something is unified, yet differentiation also occurs along two complementary but divergent paths?
