Liquid Light

Just like the changing light from morning to nightfall of any day, the Liquid Light works change with the viewer’s movements, each one opening and closing like the pupil of an eye. Every degree of movement reveals yet another image where the game between artwork and viewer endlessly unfolds. ______________________________________________________________________________ ‘A return to the painted …

2010 MIND & MATTER, A 15 Year Survey

Drill Hall Gallery, The Australian National University
27 May–4 July 2010
Curated by Glen Israel

This survey exhibition covers 15 years of creative endeavour in a variety of media and forms by major Australian artist, Marion Borgelt, demonstrating her innovative approach, yet solid grounding in personal ideas and concerns.

There is a unifying order and delight to Borgelt’s work, appealing to the tactile sense as well as the visual. Her works are suggestive of nature and the rhythmic pulse of life; from the splitting of seeds and cocoons to universal symbols of the lunar cycle. Borgelt has always had an interest in abstract patterns, motifs and memory systems such as the spiral, maze and lozenge as conveyors of messages and meaning. Here we are able to discern recurring themes such as light and dark, tension and movement, the power of colour, vessels and the void.

Her work not only demonstrates superb technical refinement with the exploration of the materiality of surface, but intrigues through a melding of the intellectual and the aesthetic.
