Lunar

The moon has a powerful allure, brimming with beauty, legend and myth. Its constant presence reminds us of the heavenly bodies beyond our own planet, the vastness of our solar system and the timeless nature of the world we live in. As it orbits the earth, the moon seemingly changes appearance due to its position …

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.

Bloodlight

The Bloodlight Stack series forms part of a suite of sculptural works that are concerned with exploring the interplay between painting and sculpture through the use of paper. Sheets of paper are painted and stacked in such a way that a sculptural form is created. The backs of the sheets of paper are painted a …

Macrocosmos Paintings

Karen Woodbury Gallery writes: “Inspired by the artist’s recollection of a song by Van Morrison – a meld between jazz and rock­– the large tableau Moondance extends the artist’s preoccupation with the light, effects and mood of a lunar mise en scène. Shapes float and dance in an eerie, evening twilight.”

Full Circle

Karen Woodbury Gallery writes: “Full Circle Red harks back to works of the early 2000’s where the artist explored the play of light and refraction, often using a bright red that would cast faint rose-coloured shadows onto the host wall. Assembled in a grid each of the 16 pieces in this new work has its …

2014 Full Circle Red

Karen Woodbury Gallery
15 October – 15 November 2014

The highly acclaimed Sydney artist, Marion Borgelt, will have her first showing at Karen Woodbury Gallery from October 15 – November 15. Full Circle Red brings us visually spectacular works that explore the duality and ever-shifting power dynamics of nature and the universe, through a journey between two and three-dimensional works. This exhibition introduces several new series of works that capture a fresh interplay of movement and colour using a fluid, organic approach to form and shape.
Inspired by the artist’s recollection of a song by Van Morrison – a meld between jazz and rock– the large tableau Moondance extends the artist’s preoccupation with the light, effects and mood of a lunar mise en scène where shapes float and dance in an eerie, evening twilight.
Full Circle Red harks back to works of the early 2000’s where the artist explored the play of light and refraction, often using brilliant red that would cast faint rose-coloured shadows onto the host wall. Assembled in a grid each of the 16 pieces in this new work has its own individual character randomly twisted and curled within the constraints of a 244cm length of laminated material.
The full, mesmerizing effect of the cut canvas works in the Liquid Light series is only evident when the viewer moves around the work, this movement itself evoking the orbits of the planets. The fine, intricate strips are cut in such a way that with every incremental movement, the image shifts and changes.
Overall, there is a new level of technical development and visual complexity to this exhibition. Underpinned by her familiar themes Borgelt takes the works in Full Circle Red to new, sophisticated levels of mastery where a synthesis between construction and concept is harmoniously achieved.
