Opening August 2: Matthew Pendleton – Drawings
August 2-31. Opening reception Friday, August 2, 5-7pm
In his inaugural exhibition, Matthew Pendleton challenges judgement; a pencil in his hand becomes a sorcerer’s wand, conjuring a meditation on the first known manual of Japanese gardening, the Sakuteiki (“records of garden-making”) or a never-ending dream-time journal from the Kimberley region of western Australia.
Pendleton’s line prevails and unfolds, piquing our device-addled psyches, enjoining us to accompany him across the threshold and through the doorway of perception, the abiding frontispiece of Pendleton’s work.
On display will be drawings from 2017 to the present. The exhibition runs through August 31. The artist will be present at the opening.
