“Measurement” – a group exhibition

In a world where numbers, statistics and calculations dominate, we ask you to bring your ‘right side brain’ creativity to bear on the idea of ‘measurement’.

From cultural textile patterns to the conceptual tools of linear perspective and horizon lines, from the paradoxical paintings of Rene Magritte and etchings of M.C Escher to computer rendered fractals, from the strange phenomena of Synaesthesia, where numbers are sometimes perceived as colours, to the deliberate use of numbers and text as subject matter, our creativity is often intertwined with mathematical reference.

A suite of local artists have been invited to respond to this idea of ‘measurement’ as a starting point for Gecko’s next group exhibition.

Featuring works by artists from South Gippsland, this exhibition will run for two months.

Participating artists are – Anne Miller, Susan Purdy, Kerry Spokes, Helen Wilkinson, Grant Flather, Andrew McPherson, Trevor Wheeler, Catherine Wheeler, Susan Quinn, Colin Suggett, Heather Shimmen, Suellen Lee, Sue Gilford, Mark Reyment, Andrew Hocking, Jane Power, Werner Theinart, Regina Dudek, Kim Devenish and Lisa Hocking
