Aly de Groot's 'Uprooted'
Charles Darwin University’s School of Creative Arts and Humanities is set to present CDU Post Grad in Progress, recent works by CDU post graduate visual art research candidates.
CDU Post Grad in Progress, to run from 3-25 April, will highlight the ongoing visual research practice at CDU in painting, printmaking, multimedia, film, weaving and fibre arts.
Curator, artist and PhD candidate, Caroline Rannersberger said the works by Daphne Cazalet, Aly de Groot, Gary Lee, Birut Zemits and herself, represented the vibrant and creative environment of the Territory.
“The body of work appears eclectic, transient and disparate, yet it is bound by tenuous threads across culture and place, diasporas and disjuncture – elements which seem to echo and resonate in the work of these Northern Territory artists,” she said.
“Several of the participating artists currently exhibit nationally with commercial galleries.
“This exhibition includes highly resolved works by the artists which represent parts of a larger body to be exhibited in solo exhibitions at the end of their research.”
Caroline, who recently completed her Master of Visual Arts through CDU, is now completing her PhD and has continued to exhibit her work nationally throughout her studies.
A finalist in the Fremantle Print Award in 2006, she went on to feature in the ABC national landscape painting documentary, Painting Australia. In 2007, she was a finalist in the ABN Amro Emerging Artist Award and in the TOGA Art Award and was also featured in the Goethe Institute Far Away So Close international portrait exhibition of Germans living in Australia.
Head of School of Creative Arts and Humanities, Associate Professor Donal Fitzpatrick will open CDU Post Grad in Progress on Thursday, 3 April at 6pm at The Gallery.
Opening hours: Tuesdays 1-4pm and Wednesdays 12-4pm or by private viewing.
