27 September - 3 November
Lisa Ashcroft | Queensland Glitterati
Lisa Ashcroft’s stylised landscapes document time and place. The markmaking, scratches and surface graffiti inherent to the works further document the hand of the artist. In this way, the works serve as reminders of our need to be remembered and to leave behind signs of our existence. Ashcroft presents Queensland’s beauty and scale, and Far North Queensland’s luminosity – awe-inspiring visuals for a girl from gloomy Northern England.
Join us for the exhibition opening 6pm Friday 27 September at Umbrella’s new home, 408 Flinders St, Townsville (next to Mary Who? Bookshop). Lisa will also be giving a Floortalk (details here) and running an associated workshop (bookings coming soon) – both at our new location.
