Exhibition Floor Talk - The DNA of Colour: Ildiko Kovacs

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

Join us for the Opening Night of The DNA of Colour: Ildiko Kovacs on Thursday 20 June at 6pm. The exhibition will be officially launched by Dr Deborah Hart, Senior Curator of Australian Painting and Sculpture, National Gallery of Australia.

ldiko Kovacs [born 1962] is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary abstract artists. This exhibition spans the last ten years of painting by the prolific painter. We follow the action of the artist’s body and arm via the movement of the loaded paint roller as it layers and weaves relationships in time and space, curling, overlapping or intertwining lines like twin strands of an unravelling double helix of DNA code. The DNA of Colour celebrates the optical fizz and energy of Kovacs’ paintings while showing how this artist had made a new contribution to painting.

Curated by Sioux Garside for Orange Regional Gallery and the Drill Hall Gallery and supported by Martin Browne Contemporary.
