Pa­gan re­li­gions in­spire art­works

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Comedy -

ARTIST Godfrey Blow’s lat­est ex­hi­bi­tion Land­scape,Sea and­Be­yond is show­ing at Harvi­son Gallery from Septem­ber 7 to 28. The solo ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture a se­lec­tion of the con­tem­po­rary artist’s lat­est paint­ings and draw­ings of land­scape images from Aus­tralia, Ire­land and the Bri­tish Isles. “The forests, fields, hedgerows, ru­ins, wa­ter­ways and oceans fea­ture strongly in my re­cent works,” Blow said. “Fig­u­ra­tive images are in­te­grated into land­scape forms, which cre­ate works of imag­i­na­tive power. The phi­los­o­phy be­hind the art­work comes from the an­cient pa­gan re­li­gions of the Bri­tish Isles, com­bined and con­trast­ing with Christian iconog­ra­phy.” Harvi­son Gallery is at 195 Bris­bane Street, Perth and is open 11am-5pm, Tues­day to Sun­day.
