OPENING NIGHT: Thursday August 3, 6PM-8PM

Wojcik apprehends contextual, historical and geographical concerns with an acute sensitivity. From a painterly perspective, Wojck’s unmistakable fractures of vibrant blues and contrasting purples break through the masterful realism of his canvases, emphasizing the flatness of the canvas at play with the depth of painterly representation. 

The collision of traditional painterly realism, evoking European Masters, colliding with Wojcik’s contemporary interventions is transformed through his attention to place. 

This exhibition sees Wocjik painting between places, with traditional European sensibilities applied to the Australian landscape, producing immersive canvases from an artist inhabiting a liminal location between two poles.
