Interlude Gallery invites you to our upcoming solo exhibition by Sydney based artist Cornelis Timmer. Opening Night: Thursday 5th October 6-8pm *Kindly Sponsored by Poor Toms Gin Closing Feast: Saturday 14th October 3-5pm *With food prepared by the artist for the public “Abstract art has been written about endlessly but when I recently came across an essay by Vered Aviv I realised that his text, as far as I was concerned, hit the nail on the head about my work. Aviv writes:‘Abstract art frees our brain from the dominance of reality, enabling it to flow within its inner states, create new emotional and cognitive associations, and activate brain-states that are otherwise harder to acces (Front Hum Neurosci. 2014; 8: 85). ‘Plastic Realities’ showcases my development over the past 4 years or so. Within the work you will find traces of the ‘harmonic order’ pursued by the Dutch ‘De Stijl’ group, the emotional intensity of Mark Rothko and the ‘revolutionist’ in me through the Russian Avant Garde movement of the early 20th Century. I have taken therefor the liberty to pay a tribute to some of these artists. The show features 2 types of work; traditional oil/acrylic works and works executed in plastics. ‘Plastic’ as in ‘artificial or false’ seems to reflect the ‘Spirit of our Age’ in which ‘truth’ has become nothing more than a 5 letter word.”
