Stand Back

Tim Burns, Fred Fisher, Patrick Grieve, Paul Gundry, Jamin, Donna Lougher, Anne Mestitz, Janine Morris, Anne Morrison, Michael Muruste, Ellie Ray, Paul Snell and Lucia Usmiani

Stand Back refers to the ability to gain a different understanding when we change our perspective. Stand Back prioritises the child’s perspective. In art making, different techniques, patterns and optical illusions can change an image depending on whether we look at it closely or at a distance.

Thirteen contemporary artists explore these possibilities using a wide range of materials, creating works that play with the visual and physical ‘presence’ of perception. The unifying principle of the works on show is their strength and richness. This exhibition, curated by Josie Hurst, introduces children to an engagement with art and art making through exposure to rich and diverse visual experiences. Adults will also connect strongly with the powerful presence of these artworks from some of Tasmania’s finest contemporary artists.

Curator: Josie Hurst
